Description

Petition on behalf of Vincent de Paul. He asks that PF send the usual missionary faculties for four priests who will go to the Madagascar mission, to join Charles Nacquart; Nacquart's companion Nicolas Gondrée died [in May 1649] six months after their arrival, leaving him alone on the mission. He furthermore asks that the names be left blank so that he can think about whom to send. The nuncio can then approve these four, and one among them can be appointed prefect in case Charles Nacquart also dies.
Additional comments
