Par la Devise de Monsigneur le Mareschal de saint
André
,[1] qui est du bras & espee d’Alexandre le Grand,
coupant le Nœud indissoluble, en Gordie, palais antique
de Midas, se pourroit entendre (selon mon avis) certein
moyen que tient ledit Signeur à rendre par vertu faci-
les & aisees, les choses estimees de plusieurs dificiles
& impossibles.
