Description

Letter from Alexander Leslaeus [Alexander Lesley] to PF. It has been three years since he went to Scotland to work for the mission. He certainly made progress, especially in Banff [Bamffensi], Aberdeen, Mernensi? [Nairn?] and Angus. In these places there are many Catholics, and many also converted to Catholicism. Unfortunately, however, it has not been possible to acquire lodging in the houses of Catholics. As required under his duty, Lesley has been writing often to PF. At the end of July his faculties expire and he asks PF to renew them.
