Well it's the first time I'm asking for school-help here.

I need to write a text in which I need to convince the King Of France (in the 17th century) NOT to chase/persue/exile the Huguenots (protestants).


any ideas and arguments would be extremely helpful!!!!


Edit: I should have said that I would be a character from the same time-period.

let them stay in their own villages and make them work harder and produce more product/etc for the king. this imo is a realistic suggestion. if you try to convince the king during that time that the protestants have rights and **** he's gonna be like 'wtf are rights, i make rights now you must die for being an r-tard'

Dear King of France,

Rather than exiling the Huguenots why not help prepare your smelly, hairy country for the almost certain failure you will greet in the future.

Thank ya,

I would actually help if I could; I just have no knowledge of France in the 17th century.

From what I've gathered in this thread it seems like the huguenots were treated like crap so just go off of that. They can provide a cheap labor force, the majority of taxes are collected from the lower class, etc.

Only elaborate a lot on your points so your paper is longer and seems in-depth even if you're really re-wording the same thing 20 times!

Dear Mr 17th Century Bourbon(I think) French Royal Type
These Protestants aren't too bad. In fact, Proddie ministers are much less likely to introduce children to the delights of pederasty than your current crop of Papist preachers, so for the sake of French children's assholes, please don't persecute the Sons Of William, for they are the people.
Yours with the greatest respect I can muster for one of your sort,
