Description

Petition on behalf of Giovanni il Vacher [Jean Le Vacher] to PF. As he is vicar apostolic of Algiers and Tunis and therefore has the power to appoint a substitute, he has sent a Capuchin priest [Luigi Da Palermo], from Sicily to Tunis; the slaves, priests and consul in the city and the Knights of Malta also asked him to send the priest. Le Vacher ransomed the Capuchin priest for 600 piastre, with the authority of vicar apostolic for three years. He has heard that Antonio Di Seravezza has returned to the mission of Tunis and Tripoli (which his order of the Minor Observants has control of), and according to a letter that Di Seravezza wrote to Le Vacher (and that Le Vacher will now sent to PF), he asks PF what should be done. Summary on the back. Monsignore [Federico Baldeschi?, the secretary] says that not only has Seravezza never been made vicar, but he he has also never been made missionary; the missions of Tunis and Tripoli were also never assigned to the Minor Observants. PF agrees with the appointment of the Sicilian Capuchin [Luigi Da Palermo] as vicar apstolic of Tunis.
