Description

Letter from PF to the vicar apostolic of Algiers [Benjamin-Joseph Huguier]. PF feels sorry for father Clemente Da Maenza (who when leaving Rome to return to his mission in Congo), was imprisoned and brought as a slave to Algiers. Despite PF hoping he will not be there for too long, they believe that a fruitful use of his time, is to help the Christian slaves. For this reason they ask Huguier to grant Da Maenza the needed faculties; PF is also asked to grant Father Mariano Da Orta the needed faculties, as he also finds himself in the same situation as Da Maenza.
