22. Sir Francis Englefield to John Cardinal Moroni, Protector of England.
Acknowledging receipt of the Cardinal's letter of 18 December, 1571, and a bill of exchange for 487 crowns, being less by 13 crowns than the amount stated in the letter. 400 crowns have been disbursed according to Moroni's instructions: the balance is accounted for by an enclosure [wanting]. He regrets that he could not “make the portions better” by reason of the multitude of necessitous persons, twice as many as those that have been relieved having received nothing. Nevertheless, in the name of all the beneficiaries he most humbly thanks the Pope for his charity displayed on this and many other occasions.
