Title

Petition on behalf of Fra Alberto Di San Michele to PF [1649]

Subject

Madagascar
Discalced Carmelites

Description

Petition on behalf of Discalced Carmelite Alberto Di San Michele [Albert de Saint Michel?] prefect of the mission to Madagascar, and his companions, requesting a renewal of his patent (as prefect of the mission) and a subsidy from PF to cover travel and initial expenses in Madagascar. He states that he has not been able to secure the passage to the island yet, because he has to pay for the journey, and although willing to take them, the ship's captain (a heretic), will not let them travel for free. In support of his request, he references PF decree establishing the mission (26 November 1647) and a letter from late Monsignor Ingoli to the nuncio in France (27 March 1649).
Additional comments
The year is from PF filing system, not the petition itself. In other letters it becomes clear that Alberto Di San Michele [Albert de Saint Michel?] left Paris without permission, therefore its likely he was in Paris. See for example: 'APF SOCG 248, 36r, 41v (database item 168).
