According to an entry in the archives of Compiègne, a courier named
Tassart du Tielt obtained letters from "the Maiden" (Joan of Arc's standard nickname)
and Charles VII while he was on a mission of 18 days,
from the 29th of August through the 15th of September, 1429, to obtain
word from the Royal army during its Paris campaign.
