Description

Letter from PF secretary [Edoardo Cibo] to Jean Le Vacher, vicar apostolic in Algiers. The secretary writes that Capuchin Father Giuseppe da Bologna has written to him, complaining that as there are so many slave priests, he has been left with only two bagnos to serve (one of which might go to another priest). Da Bologna wrote that the potential loss could result in a drop in income for him, and that sooner or later he will not be able to pay the rent of his house, which increased from 36 to 45 pezze da otto. Before referring this problem to the cardinals, the secretary wants to know from Jean Le Vacher the state of the mission, and the results of the Capuchin presence in the city. He also wants to know if it is possible to find a house with a lower rent. The letter dated 8 April 1683.
