(Penalver y Cardenas, Luis), Bishop of
St. Louis, Louisiana

to Father (Pierre Joseph) Pedro Didie(r, O.S.B.
St. Louis, Missouri?)

Penalver has Didier's letter of February 18 and April 17 in which he tells about the deplorable condition of the church. The treasury cannot take on the burden and Penalver has no money to assist in these necessities, which grieves him. The Governor, in considering these matters has made the timely suggestion that an assessment be made in the vicinity to defray the cost.
