Content Description

On his arrival in Rome Hoare introduced him to Mr. Jenkins, an Englishman with great influence over the Pope and the Cardinals, though not as much as in the time of Pope Ganganelli; through this man he has obtained a permit to copy the pictures in the Vatican; he describes seeing the Pope and other aspects of Rome; he dislikes the Italians increasingly as they try to cheat him.
