Giovanni Costa letters
Giovanni Costa of the Society of Jesuits (S.J.) wrote these three letters to three English contacts on the same day in 1851: Thomas Grant (1816-1870), Roman Catholic bishop of Southward; Jesuit Father Brownbill in London; and Nicholas Patrick Stephen Wiseman (1802-1865), cardinal and archbishop of Westminster. In each of these letters, he provided an introduction to Mr. Giacomo Laguita (1813-1895), described as a good Catholic and the lawyer of the British Legation in Naples, Italy. He asked that his contacts extend assistance to Mr. Laguita as necessary. Mr. Laguita was also known as Sir James Philip Lacaita.
