Description
Forwards a letter from the officer in charge at the castle of Ham, informing him of the death of the Marquis de Marbaeuf, brother of the Archbishop of Lyons, for several years a prisoner there; a conflict of jurisdiction has occurred between the officer and the town judiciary as to the seal which the former placed on the effects of the deceased, according to the usage in the case of prisoners; he himself thinks the town judiciary is right, since the Marquis was confined there as a private individual, because of his infirmities, and not because of his military rank; he wishes the matter might be decided, although the effects are of no great value.
