Description

Letter from [Francesco] Barberini to [the prefect of PF]. He presents the public merits and the private problems of Giovanni Valcher [John Walker]. He has worked for 22 years for the Scottisch mission, and eventually as superior for the other missionaries. He has lost his health however, and he cannot move the left side of his body. He travelled to Padua, where one can find the best doctors. As [the prefect of PF] can read in the statements of the doctors, there is no other hope for Walker. That is why Walker asks PF for help.
