Description

Letter from Maro Aurelio Bongrazij to PF. Following the orders of the Governatori delle Armi, and Cavaliere Malaspine (the commandor of the galleys), the most prominent slaves have been interrogated. They need to know whether they ever encountered difficulties, or are currently receiving difficulties, the current use of the place that they used to bury their dead, and whether this has been taken from them. They responded unanimously that they always enjoyed, and still do enjoy (without any impediment), the use of the land to bury their dead. They promised to make an authentic declaration of this, though as to date this has not het been done. They have stated that the declaration could damage them, as in the kingdom of Naples, the bodies of the Turks are burned and thrown into the sea. They showed not to have been mistreated in Civitavecchia, of which he wanted to make a declaration by Cavaliere Malaspina, but this has not yet been possible.
