Letter #1940

Ioannes DANTISCUS to Tiedemann GIESE
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1538-10-14, postscript 1538-10-17

English register:

Through the tailor, Dantiscus is sending Giese the records [acta] as well as the cope and other items. The records are lacking the acta of the latest Marienburg (Malbork) Diet, which was in session in Dantiscus’ absence. Dantiscus asks that the acta be entered in his register.

Acceding to Giese’s recommendation, he has decided to grant the Guttstadt (Dobre Miasto) canonry not to his chaplain but to the parish priest of Dietrichswalde (Gietrzwałd) [Simon Hecht], whom he is summoning.
