Fourquevaux served as French ambassador to Spain and was heavily involved in the dispute over claims to Florida. His correspondence with France's Charles IX and Catherine de Medici highlights some of the major elements of the dispute and Spain's harsh response and massacre of French settlers there. Also included is miscellaneous correspondence relating to the Americas and West Indies, as well as Fourquevaux's letterbook. All items are in French unless otherwise noted.
