Letter #1757

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to Sigismund I Jagiellon
Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-[12]-01

English register: Dantiscus is surprised and worried that with regard to the court case against Jan Rabe concerning the theft of two horses, Prussian subject Jerzy Loka has appealed the voivode court’s verdict directly to the judges of the royal court of justice, bypassing the level of the Prussian Council. He asks the king to intervene in defense of the legal appeal procedure, pointing out that the king himself established this law.
