Letter #1926

Ioannes DANTISCUS to Tiedemann GIESE
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1538-09-20

English register:

Dantiscus impatiently awaits the tailor’s return, and asks Giese to intervene. He asks what time of day Giese will arrive in Guttstadt (Dobre Miasto).

Letters from the royal court have arrived. Dantiscus is surprised that Duke Albrecht [I Hohenzollern-Ansbach] was a mediator in their delivery. The servant Dantiscus sent to Cracow [Filip Szczepanowski] stopped there because of the death of his father [Erazm Szczepanowski]. The other messenger should be back soon.

Dantiscus is sending Giese a letter received from [Samuel] Maciejowski regarding the conduct of the Fuggers’ servant [Georg Hegel?], and a letter to Giese from the Queen [Bona Sforza]. He expects the King’s [Sigismundus I Jagiellon’s] letter on public matters soon.
