Description

Letter from Luca Palmaro, a slave in Tunis, to PF. He writes that he gave Jean Le Vacher 150 pezze during the plague. Jean Le Vacher once gave him 30 pezze for his needs. When the epidemic was over, Palmaro asked for the other 120 pezze back, but Jean Le Vacher refused. Therefore Palmaro can only report this to the cardinals and ask them to ensure that he will get his money back; he hopes to use the money to escape slavery. The letter signed and dated 21 June 1668.
