Letter #2106

Ioannes DANTISCUS to Tiedemann GIESE
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1539-03-12

English register:

From a letter from the Löbau Town Council, Dantiscus has learned what the members of the Collegiate Chapter in Leipzig did with regard to the testament of the deceased Doctor [Krzysztof] Kuppener, and therefore has sent [the Löbau Town Council] a letter received from the Margrave of Meissen [Georg of Saxony der Bärtige] together with requests to the same from the canons and the Leipzig Town Council. From this, Giese will get an idea of the situation.

Dantiscus is enclosing a copy of his letter to the Margrave and suggests that Giese write to him as well, with a more extensive explanation, so as not to waste the testament drawn up in favour [of the people of Löbau].

Dantiscus is sending Giese a letter concerning the Prussian Council that he kept out of forgetfulness. He asks that it be sent out to the other [Council members].
