pp. 8-9 original Italian letter of Portuguese Jesuit Patriarch Alphnso Mendez reporting to his superiors about Solomon the Jew of Vienna, who challenged him publicly!
French Translation of
Vitelleschi's work "lettere annue dell' etiopia dell' anni 1626 e 1627". Annual Jesuit letters about their influence in Ethiopia, etc.: http://books.google.com/books?id=TGIVAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA10#v=onepage&q&f=false
pp. 10ff Has Portuguese Patriarch Alphonso Mendez's description of a disputation he had with Solomon of Vienna, a Jew, who challenged him publicly in Abyssinia. This is mentioned by Aescoly in page 258 of Sefer Ha-Falashim as evidence that the discription in Mendez's Latin memoir (reprinted in 1908) was historically accurate.
On the importance of such correspondence, see: http://books.google.com/books?id=ekdFAAAAYAAJ&lpg=RA1-PA39&ots=IGscAKgqPg&dq=lettere%20annue%20dell'%20etiopia%20dell'%20anni%201626%20e%201627&pg=RA1-PA35#v=onepage&q=lettere%20annue%20dell'%20etiopia%20dell'%20anni%201626%20e%201627&f=false
