Description

Copy of a letter from Graio [Gilbert Gray] to [William] Lesley. He writes to the procurator that Lesley, on his departure, urged him to write frequently, as he often complained that the other missionaries did not write often enough. Gray, however, states that he has written frequently, as has the prefect, but both have received very few answers in return. Therefore they are wondering whether their efforts please PF or not. In the procurators' last letter, it also seems as if something was not satisfying him. Gray asks him to be more clear about what he is doing wrong, since this he has not been explicit. Lastly, he writes that a list has been made of all Catholics in the region, therefore they fear persecution. The letter dated 28 December 1667.
