Subject

Cardinal rings

Description

Letter from PF to the nuncio to France, Giovanni Francesco Guidi di Bagno, in Paris about various matters; the last part refers to the cardinal ring issue. PF gives a negative response to the nuncio's suggestion (following the archbishop's request) that PF ask the pope to grant relief from the archbishop's obligation to pay the overdue annate for an abbey he had administered for several years, in return for his paying the cardinal ring fee. PF did not find it "convenient" to ask His Holiness for this favor as a way to convince the archbishop to pay the cardinal fee. PF instructs the nuncio to talk again with the archbishop about the matter and try to convince him to pay for the ring, and then that he (the nuncio) should write again to PF, who will try to see what the pope can do to "give him satisfaction," all the while reminding the archbishop that he should 'ease his conscience' and pay the overdue annate.
