NGC 7613 and NGC 7614 are two of Brother Ferrari's nebulae announced by Father Secchi in AN 1571. N7614 is "Very near [N7613] south-preceding" according to the note that Secchi gives, but there is no obvious double nebula anywhere near the nominal position. There are many galaxies in this area, however. Perhaps one of them, plus a faint star or asterism, will turn out to be the objects the good brothers saw.
See NGC 7667 for more about these observations.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a galaxy. Their coded description reads SLEL,STEL.
