Description

Petition on behalf of Vincent de Paul asking to appoint Toussaint Bourdaise, as the new prefect of the Madagascar mission, following the death of the previous prefect, Charles Nacquart. The petition mentions that Bourdaise had already been declared apostolic missionary, and for several years, had applied himself with good results to the spiritual aid of the people in Madagascar. A second paragraph (written in a different handwriting) adds another request: should Toussaint Bourdaise fall prey to some accident and die, the cardinals of PF are asked to allow that a new prefect be nominated by Vincent de Paul, from among the missionaries of CM who are already on the island (subject to approval by the nuncio to France). PF notes mention that the cardinals approved the request. The petition is undated and unsigned.
