Letter #1733

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to [Seweryn BONER]
Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-09-28

English register: Dantiscus is replying to two letters from Boner. He thanks him for the news and for sending the gold cup – a gift from Count Otto Heinrich (Wittelsbach), and also for the greetings and news from Mikołaj Nipszyc. Dantiscus informs Boner about the Danish king’s coronation. He notes that the ceremony, which was held in Copenhagen, lacked the element of anointment. Albrecht, prince in Prussia, returned to Gdańsk from the coronation eight days ago. Because of the pestilence, he was forced to travel by sea. Knowing the customs and nature of the Danes, Dantiscus does not believe in Denmark’s lasting friendly feelings towards Prussia, or lasting peace in this region in general. Dantiscus informs Boner that the Warmia Chapter has elected him bishop. Boner will receive detailed information from Mikołaj Nipszyc once he returns from the Prussian assembly. Dantiscus assures Boner of his gratitude for his services.
