Letter #3864

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to Sigismund I Jagiellon
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1539-03-03

English register:

Dantiscus expresses thanks for the favour shown to his subjects. He promises to make sure it does not become an example to others in future, and also to make his subjects more willing to pay tax.

In connection with news that a fleet is gathering for an unknown purpose on the Baltic, Dantiscus has advised the Gdańsk Town Council to secure the port. He asks the King to command them to do so as well.
