Description

Letter from David Burnet to PF. John Walker was the prefect of the mission but he suffered from a stroke. He remained prefect for two more years. But in May 1671 he went to London, as he hoped that the doctors there could help him. During his absence he made David Burnet prefect. Eventually Walker decided to go to France, and eventually to Padua. Alexander Winster works in the province of Aberdeen and Bamfia[?], and one year ago he travelled to Angus and Moray[?]. Fran' Le Blanc [Francis White], Fran' Macdonald [Francis MacDonell] and Rob' Monro [Robert Monro] work in the mountains of Scotland. Alexander Irvin works in the neighbourhood of Edinburgh. Gilbert Gray is useless for the mission and Burnet asks PF to recall him. Alexander Burnet came a year ago from the Scottish College in Rome without faculties, and he has been doing nothing ever since.
