Scottish colleges

Description

Letter from Robert Monro to PF. He writes from the mountains areas of Scotland. He states that should there be more missionaries who speak Gaelic in the area, it would be much easier to convert people to Catholicism. The children from poor parents require travelling money, in order to be able to attend the Scottish Colleges abroad. All the missionaries except for himself are foreigners, and the country that once flourished has now fallen to heresy.
