Description

Copy of a letter from PF to Vincent de Paul. PF writes that some Recollects have proposed to go to Madagascar, in order to address the great need of missionaries in the mission. The cardinals, however, chose to first ask Vincent de Paul, as some of his missionaries have already been to the island. They now ask Vincent de Paul to send four priests (the nuncio to France will have approved them first), and to immediately refer their names to PF, so that their faculties can be drafted. In the meantime, if there is a ship going to Madagascar, the missionaries should embark and the faculties will be sent after their departure. The letter dated 18 March 1652.
