Description

Letter from PF to Patritio Coneo [Patrick Coneo]. PF is committed to establishing a hospital for the missionaries in Scotland. Lesleo [William Lesley] the procurator of the mission, has delayed the foundation of the hospital, as up until now, they did not have the resources to maintain the hospital. Every time they discuss the hospital, PF maintains its support for establishing the hospital. The missionaries are asked to continue their service for the mission, and work for the benefit of their nation, whose health must be their first concern. They should not abandon the mission; Lumsdenio [Thomas Lumsden], left the mission even though his faculty had not yet expired, and PF paid his provisions prior to the beginning of his mission. It is noted that if the priests from the country itself do not care about the spiritual well-being of their Fatherland (as with Leto [Alexander Leith] who also left the mission), it is not PF's fault that there are so few missionaries left. However to not leave the mission of Scotland completely empty of missionaries, PF has decided to find two subsitutes. PF wrote to the nuncio to check the suitabilty of their two new candidates.
Additional comments
The two proposed missionaries are Guglielmo Cristio and a certain Funconot, see: APF Lettere 50, 127v (database item 828).
