Ioannes DANTISCUS to Tiedemann GIESE
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1538-04-15

English register:

Dantiscus is recovering; advice, pleasant company and conversation provided by the Doctor [Nicolaus Copernicus] have been his medicine. Through the Doctor, Dantiscus is sending Giese news about the lawsuit against Paweł [Snopek].

Dantiscus has heard that his own rights to a prebend and the rights of the Provost [Paweł Płotowski] are being questioned; he intends in the future to punish those responsible.

He asks Giese to support Paweł [Snopek] and on this matter to trust the information provided to the Doctor [Nicolaus Copernicus].

            received [1538]-04-16
