Description

Copy of a letter from PF to Jean Le Vacher, vicar apostolic in Tunis. Le Vacher is asked for information about Father Guglelo [William] Lull, who is being held captive in Algiers. Lull has asked PF for a letter of recommendation for Padri del Riscatto, so that they will help him either by ransoming him, or by providing him with money for his subsistence. If Le Vacher finds that Lull is really assisting the Christian slaves in Algiers, as he asserts, then Le Vacher should help and encourage him in every possible way. The letter dated 5 June 1651.
