Letter from the nuncio to France, Nicolò Guidi di Bagno, to the PF secretary [Francesco Ingoli], 1647-08-16, Paris

Subject

Babylon

Description

The nuncio to France, Nicolò Guidi di Bagno, writes about a conversation with Cardinal Mazzarin in Amiens, during which they talked about the issue of the coadjutor to the bishop of Babylon (as well as the bishop's trip to Catalonia). Mazzarin said that the king put aside 400 scudi expressly for the trip of the nominee to Persia, and that he had given express orders to "Father Vincent" (Vincent de Paul) to nominate somebody. The nuncio reminds Ingoli that he also talked to Vincent de Paul several times about the matter, but that he does not have much hope judging by the coldness with which Vincent de Paul treated the matter, and also the delay of one year so far; but the nuncio will continue to remind and entreat Vincent de Paul to resolve the matter.
