Content DescriptionComments on the imprudence of the captain of a British vessel who has been threatened with arrest for distributing Bibles and tracts "subversive of the Roman Catholic religion"; hopes that the British consuls have found a way of facilitating his departure, but if not, he [Buchanan] will do everything in his power to protect him; it is vital that religious people in England understand that in trying to turn Spanish people toward Protestantism, they endanger the possibility of even moderate toleration for Protestant British subjects permanently residing in Spain.
