Title

Report on subjects from the papal states enslaved in Barbary, [Rome]

Subject

Algiers
Ransom
Slaves (Christian)
Tunis

Description

The letter begins with a list of 19 subjects from the papal states, that are slaves in Algiers. Because nobody is trying to free them, there are many subjects of the pope still in slavery in Tunis. They do not profit from the services of the orders of redemption. This could be solved easily by writing to the bishops of the four provinces of the papal states. They should ask them to elect the most capable persons to collect alms, that can contribute in the freeing of the subjects.
