Dear Sir or Madam

This note concerns the entries in your online listing marked:

William Allen (1532-1594), Cardinal; Jesuit

I wish to point out that Cardinal William Allen, though a close associate of the Jesuits, was never actually a member of the Society of Jesus himself. His designation as a Jesuit therefore needs to be removed, please.

I hope this information is helpful.

Yours faithfully
