Not only will I be housed as I expected, on the Palais Royal in the small hotel in the city that Perrot sold for a profit of 35,000#, but his warehouse exists, flourishes, increases, makes people jealous, satisfies fine mouths, that there are 15,000# of wines, and that it will always exist [...] ". - Ligier family, 11 letters. "I send this package to Dijon where you are certainly not because you must be as well as your dear sister in Saint Jean de Losne [...] by asking you to give my respects to my good friend your tender wife in the first place, then to your father who will find the harvest too ugly this year [...]. Please be assured that we will not keep our good wine for a better occasion [...]".
