Letter #1742

Graudenz (Grudziądz), 1537-10-05

English register: Dantiscus expresses his conviction that Chojeński is a mainstay for him in the matters about which he wrote to him extensively in the letter of October 1 (letter CEID 1.1, No. 48, p. 262-269 IDL 1737). He informed him about the sessions of the Prussian assembly in the brief letter sent through Mikołaj Nipszyc (letter CEID CEID 1.1, No. 51, p. 275 IDL 1740). The present letter serves as authorization for Mikołaj Nipszyc as the messenger who will orally present an urgent matter of state importance at the royal court on behalf of the Prussian Council. Dantiscus asks Chojeński to help Nipszyc reach the king and present the problem. Nipszyc has not been supplied with credentials with the seal of the Prussian Council because the envoys from Elbląg, whose councilors are traditional keepers of the seal, have still not reached the assembly. These credentials, addressed to Chojeński (CEID appendix II ID 163 ) and to the king (CEID appendix I ID 162), will be sent at a later date.
