Description

Letter from Jean Ambrozin, French consul in Tunis, to PF. He writes that Father Girolamo Da Sassari (Capuchin and vicar in Tunis), has received some letters from Jean Le Vacher, in which he announces that he had been appointed vicar apostolic of Algiers with authority over Tunis and Tripoli. On receiving this news, Girolamo was about to leave the mission, but Ambrozin made him stay. Ambrozin now asks the cardinals not to let Jean Le Vacher return to the mission which he had served so badly for years. He praises Father Girolamo and accuses Le Vacher of several mischiefs, most of which regard money issues: Le Vacher stole money from slaves and merchants, and took possessions of the local church back to France.
