Letter #1603

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to Bona Sforza
Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-03-16

English register: Dantiscus is sending the queen a copy of the letter he sent to Count von Nassau. Fabian Damerau will translate it for her (from German). Dantiscus has not yet received a reply to his letter to the archbishop in England (Thomas Cranmer). He fears Cranmer may be a victim of the religious upheavals there. If he receives a reply, he will let the queen know at once. Dantiscus informs her that the portraits on which his painter is working are not ready yet – he will send them as soon as they are completed. Dantiscus asks the queen to keep the promise she gave him in Cracow and not believe any anonymous slander.
