Letter #1440

Matthias, Abbot of the Cistercian monastery in Koronowo to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Wudzynek, 1536-04-20

English register: He apologizes for delaying his visit and says he will come next Tuesday or Thursday; he promises to describe in detail the death of [the guardian of the Franciscans in Kulm] Reverend Matthias; the reason for his having been buried before the arrival of master Płutowski (Płotowski?) is the body’s rapid decomposition; he makes an excuse for sealing the letter with Płutowski’s signet — he was at the farm at the time and did not have his own signet with him, but he wrote the letter himself.
