Vincent de Paul manuscript letter

The Vincentian Studies Institute is happy to announce the recent acquisition, from a Spanish auction house, of a Vincent de Paul manuscript letter.  The previously known letter is dated April 19, 1658 and is written to Firmin Get who was the superior of the house in Marseilles.  The letter is in a secretary’s hand with Vincent de Paul’s autograph signature.  The letter appears in Pierre Coste’s collected “Correspondence, Conferences, Documents” of Vincent de Paul, Volume 7, pages 148-149, letter #2574.  This letter will join the growing Vincentiana manuscript collection at DePaul University’s Archives and Special Collections which is the repository for the Vincentiana Collections of the Vincentian Studies Institute of the United States.
