Subject

Scotland

Description

Letter from PF to Alessandro Winstero [Alexander Winster]. PF has discussed many times the need for missionaries in Scotland, especially in the Highlands. They speak a different language in the Highlands to that in the Lowlands; it is this reason why it is hard to find missionaries. Bianchi [John White] will now travel to Scotland as missionary. CM priests (among whom he currently lives), are reluctant to let him go, but because of the sufferings of Christianity, they have decided to let him travel to Scotland. They have given John White the orders to directly go to the mission, and have immediately given him the required travel money. When Winster makes a patent for John White under his prefecture, he can be sent to the place that is most desperate for help.
