On a parchment guard, this dedication written by the hand of du Plessis-Mornay, "Psal. 27: The LORD is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? For Anne de Mornay, The lady Tabarière, my daughter, Philippe de Mornay. In Bodet, this 29th September 1620. "Below these simple lines and large, the hand of Anne de Mornay: Ref:


1582... I [Charlotte d'Arbaleste] was pregnant at this time and was brought to bed at Plessis with a daughter. She was baptized Anne and her godfather was M. de Buhy, and his wife, Anne d'Anlezy, my sister-in-law, was her godmother.

.....Four months later [after 31 Dec 1590] our sorrow was grievously renewed by the death of Dame Francoise de Bee, Mile de Buhy, M. du Plessis' mother, who loved us all dearly. Up to her last breath she showed her zeal and love for our religion. She was assisted on her death-bed by M. du Buisson, a minister of the Gospel, who is also known by the name of Viau. He has often testified that he never met anyone who was more willing to leave this world or more assured of salvation in Jesus Christ. Her death obliged us to send to Mantes to fetch our youngest child, Anne, which involved a most perilous journey. This daughter of ours had been brought up by my mother-in-law who V loved her dearly up to her last breath. She left her a legacy as well as one to my son. Her body was taken to Buhy to be buried by the side of her husband. Our tears at her loss are not dried even at the date I write, and I pray God keep the rest of the family in His mercy.
