Description

Letter from Antonio Di Seravezza to Giovanni Battista Roletti. He writes that he is happy to have received news about his friends. He also reports that the Tunis mission is suffering due to his abscence, and that has a conflict with the consul. Its noted that Antonio Di Seravezza already had orders to go to "Musu" di Martel, so that justice may be done. He has also brought letters to show this to Martel, and he has sent copies of these letters to Rome. He asks Roletti not to speak about the matter to anybody, as he himself will go to Rome to plead his case before the pope. Di Seravezza also writes that he would have never claimed the title of vicar general if he had not received it from PF. He is sorry to hear that some Christians [in Tunis] do not follow the orders of PF.
Date discussed: 1671-08-06
Additional comments
From the letter of Luigi Da Palermo, APF SOCG 430 234r-v (database item 726), it becomes clear that this Musu di Martel probably lived in France.
