Subject

Scotland

Description

Summary of three letters sent from the Scottish missionaries to PF. The nuncio to France [Francesco Nerli] has sent some letters from Scotland, written by the new prefect [David Burnetto], and one from a missionary [Alexander Winster]. In these letters they write that there are eight missionaries in Scotland, three of which are in the mountain areas, where 1,000 Catholics live. For this number one would actually already need six priests. He asks for 30 scudi each year to install [Nicolo Dunbar?] as a teacher in the school in Moidart. He also asks not to send missionaries without patents, and he  gives some information about the mission. He also asks for a document prior to the mission.
