Subject

Scotland
Scottish Catholics abroad

Description

Letter from Federico Baldeschi, secretary of PF. Two letters have been presented to the procurator of the mission of Scotland from Valchero [John Walker], who had been prefect of the Scottish mission. He had worked for this mission for 22 years, and eventually fell so badly ill, that it was necessary to travel to Padua. Because he spent all his money for his treatment he has nothing left, hence why he asks to continue his payment as missionary. The secretary of PF [Federico Baldeschi] states that he has always done good work for the mission; there was also a letter of recommendation from Barbarigo [Francesco Barberini]. PF decides to give Walker 55 scudi.
