Thanks, Barbara!

Yep. Diplomatic fencing. It's PL OK but I did not attempt to remember any of it. How did you go?

Hi Barbara,

It was hard to sort out, but I guess Louis came out on top in the end.

I tried watching "Versailles" on Netflix, but that Louis was an excitable nincompoop compared with this real Mazarin-trained diplomatic schemer, that I gave it up. Louis didn't mind playing chess with real people.

Thanks for hanging in,

Pam

Hi Jo and Barbara,

I have substituted a new link to the text because the first link had a missing page.

Thanks, Pam. PL OK.

A reminder of how ramshackle and tottering a country's polity may be. Nice that Penn got off.

Best,
