Nunes, P Leonardo
Nunes, P. Leonardo another missionary settled in India, who must not be confounded with the former, was born in San-Vicente-da-Beira. He was one of the five monks who accompanied Thomas de Souza to Brazil in 1549; the savages whom he catechized, wishing to characterize his prodigious activity, surnamed him Abare Bebe (the father who flies). He was shipwrecked and drowned June 30, 1554. See Barbosa Machado, Bibliotheca Lusitana; Vasconcellos; Noticia do Brasil.
