Letter #1798

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to Sigismund I Jagiellon
Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-11-24

English register: Because the administration of Toruń has appealed to the king against the judgment of the Łęczyca castellan (Piotr Służewski) concerning the theft of fourteen oxen, Dantiscus as the chairman of the Prussian Council asks the king to assuage this conflict in the name of maintaining the public peace and good-neighborly relations between the inhabitants of Crown lands and Royal Prussia.
