Visitation

Description

PF summary regarding a propsal to visit the Scotish mission, as discussed in a previous PF general meeting. The cardinals gave the task to search for a candidate for the visit, to Barberini who refused to go himself. The procurator of the Scottish mission [William Lesley] proposes that either an Italian priest should be sent, or one of the missionaries should do the visitation; both would be accompanied by a trusted Scot. The procurator himself would be a very good choice since he is well informed on the wishes of PF, as well as on the Scottish mission, but it is unlikely that Cardinal Charles Barberini [Carlo Barberini] would allow him to go. It is also noted that [Alexander] Winster, who has been prefect and is now a normal missionary in Scotland, could do the visitation.
Additional comments
This must be made between 1668 and 1672. In 1668 Alexander Winster stopped being the prefect and became a regular missionary. From 1672 he would take up the prefect authority once again.
