The will of Metropolitan Egumen Ioanichie

Ioanichie decided that his brothers Panait and Nicolae were to succeed him as epitropes, and that the egumens who would shepherd the Gura monastic community were to continue what he had begun. After their demise, the Archbishop of Pogoniana and the merchant elders of Bucharest, in the capacity of epitropes, were to look after Stavropoleos until it was possible to elect a new egumen, who was also to be from Gura and, if at all possible, a relative of the Metropolitan Ioanichie.
