Description

Letter from Francesco Gatta to PF. To fulfill his obligation, he informs PF about the mission in Tunis, which is under the guidance of Gio Leveascer [Jean Le Vacher]. During the Tuesday of the passion he was in Algiers (where Le Vacher is also staying), to present him the decree, and to also offer his service in whatever place necessary. He was received in his house in the most courteous way possibile. After a while Le Vacher decided to send Costa to Tunis, giving him all the faculties and instructions necessary. He had to wait for a ship, which in these areas can take time, especially due to pests. Three months ago the vicar apostolic was also struck by the pest, however he is now recovering.
