Letter #1841

Ioannes DANTISCUS to Tiedemann GIESE
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1538-03-22

English register:

Dantiscus is happy about his friendly relations with Giese and expresses satisfaction with how Felix [Reich] mediates in matters between them.

The letter Dantiscus was sent by Giese is a letter from Cracow from Georg Hegel about private matters and purchases requested by Dantiscus; Dantiscus assures Giese that Hegel will send a horseback messenger as soon as the parcel from Rome arrives.

The Provost [Paweł Płotowski] claims that he heard in Piotrków that the confirmations have been arranged already, and Dantiscus trusts this was not a lie. He also hopes the Bishop of Cracow [Jan Chojeński] is doing better than Werden writes. He thinks the news communicated by the Bishop of Linkoping [Hans Brask] about the Pope is true, since he was already infirm as a cardinal.

As regards the proceedings concerning the custodianship, he agrees with Giese’s opinion, he cannot see a worthier person than he recommended earlier; he hopes Heinrich [Snellenberg] refrains from any action until his arrival.

The cook is good at his art, but he is married and comes from Lithuania, and Lithuanians are strange.

The other matters concerning the Provost will be conveyed by Felix [Reich].

Dantiscus will send the letter to Kijowski with the other letters.
