Corruption in high places

Pierre Brulart

There are rumours swirling around the court about the financial affairs of the Viscount of Puisieux, Pierre Brulart Marquis of Sillery. Puisieux is our Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and questions have been raised as to the exact accounting of the funds of his office which amounts to many ten of thousands of Crowns. His Majesty Louis XIII's Conseil d'État et des finances has demanded a fuller accounting of the disposition of the funds.

A warm welcome

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all gentlemen recently arrived in Paris and intending to improve their situation. We are expecting great things of Sir Alex Kuzbidon, who recently took over the knighthood of his father. All the other recent arrivals that we have noted are second sons of their father and hence are unlike to inherit their father' position (for M. Transformée and M. Côte de Boeuf this is probably a blessing in disguise given their current lowly place!). Apart from Aline Yar (a member of the very wealthy Yar family) the remaining newcomers are all the sons of gentlemen of varying funds

War Preparations

Work by the Secrétaire d'État de la Guerre continue to prepare for the summer campaign of 1624. The Frontier Regiment and the Royal Highland Border Regiment will be joined by 6 regiments of Infantry. The regiments to be sent are the 13th and 53rd Fusiliers, the 27th Musketeers, the 4th and 6969 Arquebusiers as well as the Gascon Regiment. All members of these regiments will go to the front during the months of juin, juillet and aôut. The regular army units will be conducting a siege although the Secrétaire d'État de la Guerre has not yet determine where!
