Description

Letter from Julien Guérin to Cardinal Capponi, accompanying a few letters he is forwarding to PF and which he received from a Maur. Guérin apologizes that the letters are open, but he found them in this state. Guérin also mentions that: a) the plague lost some of its virulence; b) some apostates came back to the Church; c) Christian matters are going well; some Christian priests won their freedom and left, but others arrived in their stead; d) the current priests live well and help the Christians by giving them good examples; e) there are three slaves of the Minor Observant Franciscan Order who are tied to their owner for 2,000 piastre, and Guérin is asking Capponi to write to their General, because they are in danger; f) he himself is doing everything he can to help the local Christians; and g) regarding the dispensation he had previously requested for the two apostates who wanted their union recognized, there is no more need for that, since they both have died.
