Title

Letter from the nuncio to France [Giovanni Francesco Guidi di Bagno] to the PF prefect [Ludovico Ludovisi], 1627-07-16, Paris

Subject

Cardinal rings

Description

The new nuncio to France, Giovanni Francesco Guidi di Bagno, lets PF know that the solution suggested by PF in a letter from 20 May 1627, namely to collect the fee for the ring of late Cardinal de Retz via litigation with the owners of his goods, would be too difficult and costly. Instead, he tried to convince the archbishop of Paris to pay the fee out of "liberality" and for the sake of the pope and PF. The archbishop promissed to do so, but with a delay of "several months." The nuncio accepted the promise without rushing the archbishop to fulfill it by the time of the following PF general meeting; the nuncio is going to follow up with the archbishop in order to make sure that he pays the fee.
