Description

Letter from Gio' le Vacher [Jean Le Vacher] to PF. From the missionaries of Rome, he received many medals that PF had given him to distribute among the slaves, in order to keep them devoted. They are a great consolation to the slaves, especially now that the war between two Bey brothers is tearing the region apart. As the indulgences conceded to the chapels have expired, he asks PF to renew them. They are for the following chapels: S. Louis of France for its celebration, and for those of S. Anthony Abbot, S. Croce, SS'ma Trinità, l'Immacolata Concezione della B.V., Saint Sebastian, S. Giuseppe, S. Carlo Borromeo, S. Francesco d'Assisi, la Madonna del Carmine, la Madonna del Rosario, S. Rocco, S. Caterina V. e M. and S. Rosalia l'annunziata. The Trinitarian Fathers have once again arrived from Spain, and have been instructed by their provincial Father to be subject to the authority of Le Vacher. Now they are writing each other letters, despite Le Vacher trying to help them; he has been maintaining their hospitals for eight months now, and is waiting for help from Spain.
