Description

Letter from PF to the nuncio to France Card'l Roberti [Carlo Roberti de' Vittori]. The procurator general of the Congregation of the Discalded Augustinians of France, informed PF about the lack of financial aid for the mission in Barbary; the mission used to be supported by a French merchant, but since he died, they lost their income. There is however another French merchant who has offered to pay for the expenses of the mission. They ask for more missionaries to be sent to the mission, and for one of them to be given the faculties of prefect of the mission. PF (wanting to help in the spiritual needs of these regions), asks de' Vittori to inform them about the suitability of the proposed candidates, and for more information regarding the proposal of the merchant.
