1658: In a letter to Mr Pinion, father of Peter Pinion, born on June 19, 1630 who took his vows in the congregation on October 14, 1657 Vincent de Paul explains, that members of the Congregation are not religious until they take simple vows. And that the vow of poverty does not impede disposition of properties and goods, as well its fruits and rents unless it is certainly allowed by the superiors.
