Description

Letter from the nuncio to France Fabrizio Spada, to Urbano Cerri, PF secretary. He recommends a Spanish boy of 16 to be taken into the care of PF. The attached letter from Francesco Gatta (a missionary in Tunis) to the nuncio, recounts how this boy endured many sufferings because his brothers and Father wanted him to become a Jew, as they had; the boy however refused. He is now in Livorno, but wants to go to Rome when his quarantine finishes. During their meeting of 7 February 1678 the cardinals decided to help this boy, and write to a certain "Iulio de’ Angelis" in Livorno, to find out if he knows anything about the case.
