Ioannes DANTISCUS to Tiedemann GIESE
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1539-02-17

English register:

Dantiscus thinks there has been no reply from the Thorn Town Council because they have reached an agreement with their adversaries [the Gdańsk Town Council] but do not want this fact to surface.

As for the tax, he intends to proceed like Giese. Others may do as they think fit.

Dantiscus is pained that none of his countrymen (nemo de nostris) stood up for him at the court [on the matter of where to deposit the tax money].

Dantiscus has not yet had news of a Turkish defeat.
