Description

Petition on behalf of René Alméras, superior general of CM, asking PF to approve the dispatch of one additional missionary to Madagascar, namely Giacomo Francesco Frachey [Jacob Francois Frachey]; Frachey, a priest from Savoy is not a member of CM, but is being vouched for by Alméras, due to his aptitude and zest. PF is requested to allow Frachey to join CM missionaries on their trip to Madagascar, and to also grant him the status of apostolic missionary, with the faculties that would be conferred on him by the prefect of the mission [Nicolas Etienne]. The petition also mentions that the new addition to the mission, would not cost PF anything. The notes on 35v show that: a) the matter was assigned to Cardinal Pallotto for referral in the general meeting; and b) the request was approved by PF on 23 January 1663.
