Description

Extensive letter from Antonio Di Seravezza, Minor Observant working in Tunis to PF. He writes about the merits of his companion Girolamo Da Sassari, and also about how disastrous it would be, were Jean Le Vacher to receive authority over the mission in Tunis while residing in Algiers (as noted from a letter that Le Vacher sent to Da Sassari). Being that both cities are far apart, and the fact that Le Vacher only thinks about his own interests, Di Seravezza believes he would be very harmful to the mission. The letter signed and dated 27 June 1668.
