"HAVING HAD COGNOISANCE OF ONLY 2 WOLVES SINCE I WAS HERE (OF WHICH I TAKEN ONE), made me resolve to go to Ville
today to look for some towards Villevaudé [a few kilometers to the south-east, in the current department of Seine-et-Marne, whose royal hunting area depended on the captaincy of Livry] - where, if I find some, I will stay there at the lodge, if I don't find any, I will come back to sleep here. I HAVE TAKEN 4 BLACK BESTS [BLOODS] OF WHICH I SEND YOU THE BEST by the outfitter - I recommend that you always take care of your person and your health. Mine is fine, I give you my best... This kind man will go to S[ain]t-Germain to see my eldest son [the dauphin and future Louis XIV] who is not doing well.
