Algiers
Slaves (Christian)

Description

Letter from Edmond Jolly to PF. A request has been presented to PF, to declare a CM priest in Algiers missionary apostolic, in order to allow him to continue the services that he has already procured for many years. Giovanni Levacher [Jean Le Vacher], who is really old and very sick, will respond to PF's request for information on this proposed person. Because he is known as a person of good habits, is prudent, well educated in ecclesiastical matters, and because he speaks Italian (which will be usefull in these regions), Jolly intends to declare the abovementioned person, Gasparo Stella, missionary apostolic. PF however still wants to wait until Le Vacher responds with his answer.
Additional comments
There are two versions of this letter, the other one is found on f. 506v-507r. In this letter some information has been added. They speak of a certain "M'g'r Civo" who asked for information on Stella from Le Vacher. They also say: "E per[che]/ noi conosciamo le detta persona molto meglio/ di lui [Jean Le Vacher], prendo la confidanza di assicare l’E./ V’ra dell’habilità di quel soggetto."
