Seravezza case

Description

Letter from Luigi Da Palermo to PF. Luigi writes that after one year in slavery, he now wants to use the little talent he has for the church. He was freed by Giovanni LeVascher [Jean Le Vacher] who paid 500 of the 700 patacche. Le Vacher has given him the faculties of vicar apostolic of Tunis, vicar of Carthage, and archbishop of Tunis for three years. In Tabarca, Luigi has met Antonio Di Seravezza, who could not stay in Tunis, because of conflict with the French consul [Jean Ambrozin]. Antonio Di Seravezza calls himself vicar general of Africa, but he refused to show Luigi his faculties or his seal, and then he left for Italy. Luigi himself will continue with his travel to Tunis.
