Description

Letter from Agostino De Rossi and Gioseppe Merino Pantalarescho [Giuseppe Merino Della Pantelleria] to [Jean Le Vacher]. With this letter they respond to the request to send information about Girolamo Da Sassari and the situation in Tunis; they are both slave priests, one is owned by the brother of the Dey, and the other by Sidi Mamet Hoge. They are staying in Tunis with Girolamo Da Sassari's successor, i.e. Antonio Di Seravezza, who is very different from Da Sassari. It is also noted that Le Vacher is still very beloved in Tunis. They send a letter to PF about the behaviour of Da Sassari and Di Seravezza. Di Seravezza does not follow the good example of [Jean Le Vacher] and does not live in poverty as he should. When Da Sassari left, Di Seravezza was the only free priest in Tunis who could fulfill the office of vicar apostolic. He took over Da Sassari's position however, without any offical ceremony. Di Seravezza's behaviour in office has often been very violent and scandalous. They hope that Rome will send a new prelate who will restore the church of Tunis.
