Letter #2258

Ioannes DANTISCUS to [Sigmund von HERBERSTEIN]
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1540-02-23

English register:

Dantiscus received Herberstein’s letter, brought by Nikolaus Nibschitz, on September 16, 1539. He asks Herberstein to give his regards to Baron [Wilhelm] von Rogendorf. He doubts if the Spanish-type house Rogendorf is building can survive in the German climate, as the clay walls are sure to collapse easily when exposed to winter cold and washed with rain, like the rock between Bolzano and Merano that Herberstein is familiar with. He did not reply to his letter at the time because Nibschitz left suddenly. He is sending the present letter to Nibschitz.
