Description

Letter from Antonio Da Genoa to PF. Approximately 17 months ago he wrote to PF, about his wish to use the opportunity to travel by Pantelleria and Tabarca, to Tunis and Algiers. He would have been able to do this in such a way, that the Lomellini would have allowed his passage over Tabarca. The Procurator Di Corre wrote to him, saying that for now there was nothing else Da Genoa could do. PF however, told him to inform them everything he knows, and therefore Da Genoa will continue doing so. He received a letter from the vicar apostolic of Algiers [Philippe Le Vacher] containing good news; the administration of the bagni is proceeding in good order, there is a bishop in place, and there are enough priests. He only regrets that the Capuchins have left the mission and travelled to Tabarca.
