"So, Leta, is it difficult to live your life so that whenever you need to illustrate a point, you have an anecdote from your personal experience?" No, not really.
That ain't no pardon, that's a blank check! IIRC, in the book, one of the musketeers managed to have somebody get this letter outta Richelieu so that, if they were ever caught doing something, oh, not quite on the up-and-up, they could just produce that handy little "permission slip" and get off scot-free.
The Cardinal gave the pardon to M'lady because she was intending to kill someone, which the Cardinal could neither be aware of nor officially condone. Athos got it from her more or less at swordpoint.

"On a break" is community theater for "spend more time with my family" which is politics for "unemployed." (Leta)
