Declining the request which had been made to him to transfer services from the parish of St-Affrique (Aveyron) to the chapel of the Collège d'Albi, as he considers that so doing would put the townspeople at a disadvantage and jeopardise the order and tranquillity which has been established in the college (".je suis convaincu qu'en se refusant à cette demande de la ville c'est lui rendre service.")
Provenance: from a collection formed by A.M. Broadley in 1903.
