Description

Letter from Pallavicino to PF Prefect. There has been some uproar in Barbaria, because of the voluntary conversion of two girls to Christianity. Because of the orders given to him by PF on 14 July 1672, he has informed PF about the situation in a letter dated 24 August. Now the woman (who has been taken slave for the second time), has returned, he has been able to talk to her. After many conversations she was willing to convert herself to Christianity, though she still had to return to Tunis to collect her ransom of 400 "di q'ta m'ta di rame." Whilst she wanted to live with her daughters in Malta but in freedom, Pallavicino is afraid that she will not keep her word.
