Title

Summary of a petition by [William Lesley] to PF, 1664

Subject

Scotland
Scottish schools

Description

The procurator of the Scottish mission [William Lesley] asks for a provision for the schoolteacher [Alexander] Macalister who has been in the Highlands for the last two years; Macalister was initially encouraged by the assurance of the procurator (Lesley), that he would obtain an assignment for him. Since the procurator (Lesley) did not know that Macalister actually went there to teach, he never asked for it and is now requesting some form of subsidy for the toils of the last two years or, if this is not possible, at least for his current work, because he (Macalister) is in great need. At PF meeting of 30 June 1664 the cardinals decided to grant the usual subsidy for the years when he worked as a teacher, although PF did not know about it.
