Description

Letter from PF to Alessandrus Winsterus [Alexander Winster]. PF deems the Catholics in the mountains areas (including those that have been Catholic for a very long time, and those recently converted), to be worthy of their paternal caring, due to the rough times that they have expierenced. Sending any priests other than Irish to this area would be useless, as they would not speak the language. That is why they have sent Marcus and Franc'cu Macdaniel [Mark and Francis MacDannell], who are both Franciscans as missionaries. They are under the rule of the prefecture of Winster, and have been granted the usual faculties, subsidies and provision. They want Winster to send them to the place that has the greatest need for priests.
