"I read Memories of a Mister de Pontis. It tells its life and the time of Louis XIII with so much truth, naivety and good direction." - Madame de Sèvignè. French text. Louis of Pontis (1583-1670) wrote his memoirs after serving in the King's guard of Louis XIII. In it, he provides a particularly unflattering portrait of Cardinal Richelie, a political enemy who cost Pontis advancement in the King's government.
