Petitions for missionary patents

Description

Petition on behalf of Vincent de Paul to PF, which asks for missionary faculties for three priests of CM, to help assist Dermot Duiguin, who is working in the Scottish Highlands and the Hebrides. The priests are: Gerard Brin, Thomas Lumsden and John Ennery. The petition is unsigned and undated.
Date discussed [1653-04-01]
Additional comments
Coste dates the petition after 3 May 1652, "car à cette date saint Vincent ignorait encore ce qu'était devenu Gérard Brin, chassé d'Irlande par la persécution de Cromwel" (cf. P. Coste, ed., Saint Vincent de Paul: correspondance, entretiens, documents (Paris: 1920-25), vol. 1, doc. 1494) and before 29 May 1654, because at that date Thomas Lumsden was already in Scotland (cf. Coste, vol. 1, doc. 1746). However, according to APF SOCG 297, 292r, 295v (database item 300) Lumsden was already there before August 1653. Therefore, the document should be dated between 3 May 1652 and August 1653.
