Tunis
Ransom
Slaves (Christian)

Description

Letter from Luigi Da Palermo to PF. He writes that Marcello Costa has arrived in Tunis. His presence was very necessary since there are only four priests and around 10,000 Christians in Tunis. It has not been easy to find a place for Costa to live, but eventually he was placed in the house of a gentleman from Ancona, who is a slave and waiting for his family to ransom him. It is also noted that it is hard to find enough funds to maintain these priests, and there is hardly any money to ransom slaves.
