Letter #3868

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to [Iustus Lodvicus DECIUS (DECJUSZ, DIETZ)]
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1539-07-[16 or shortly after]

English register:

From Decius’ letter, Dantiscus came to understand the mistake that had occurred regarding the silk fabric. He immediately sent the fabric to the Duchess [Dorothea von Oldenburg], together with Decius’ letter.

The Duchess also informed him that the previously sent silk belts were missing the thin gold pieces of metal (flinderlen) that Decius had mentioned to her in his letter. Since Dantiscus knows nothing about them, he asks Decius to defend him before the Duchess.
