Description

Petition on behalf of Venetian slaves in Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli. They ask that PF allow two Capuchins per each city to handle financial matters, as they have nobody from their own region who they can rely on for their ransom. At present they have to do business with Jews, and they claim this only icreases problems, as opposed to helping them. During their meeting of 29 March 1678 the cardinals agree to this request.
