Description

Letter of Luigi Da Palermo, who writes that he is staying in Palermo to help in the ransoming of slaves. He is planning to return to Tunis afterwards. He received a letter from Gio' Leuascier [Jean Le Vacher] containing three copies of letters from CM: a) one about the confirmation of Luigi Da Palermo's faculties for the mission of Tunis; b) the second about Antonio da Saraveza [Antonio Di Seravezza], who pretends to be an apostolic missionary in Tunis; and c) the third about the French consul of Tunis, with whom Jean Le Vacher has a conflict. Luigi Da Palermo also writes that there are only two priests in Tunis, Antonio Di Seravezza and Elzeario Da Marseglia. The latter is French and therefore imprisoned because there is a ongoing war with France; hence this is why he asks for the permission to return to Tunis with four new priests. Its noted that he will be staying in Palermo until the answer arrives.
