Description

Copy of a part of a letter from Francis White to the prefect of the Scottish mission, Alexander Winster. The missionary writes that he is exhausted from the work he has to do. White states that it was hard even when there were still four other priests to help him, but now it is almost impossible. Especially because he converted so many, and the number of people inclined to receive instruction, and the sacraments is increasing every day. Against his wishes, he gave up conversions because he can hardly assist those he already converted every two years. He is in great need of help from "the many friends in Rome" and asks the prefect to help. The copy is dated  13 March 1664.
