Description

Petition on behalf of the procurator of the Scotish mission [William Lesley] to PF. Due to the war with the Netherlands, Scottish missionaries have been living in great poverty, and have even been forced to sell their clothes. Lesley asks for the missionaries to be paid on time, at least before the second half of the year begins. Lesley also asks PF to give Aless'ro Irvino [Alexander Irvin] 50 scudi (the other missionaries are paid this amount), instead of the 40 he currently receives. Lesley has always given him 50 scudi as he does not want him to become unmotivated with his work; however he is now unable to continue paying the difference.
