While Giandomenico was asking to return home, Lorenzo offered himself to the service of the sovereign, who accepted the requests on April 24, granting him an annual salary; on 29 May Lorenzo delegated his mother and a lawyer from Madrid to Venice for the inheritance of his father's assets, of which he obtained the sixth part in August 1771.
