Letter #431

Brussels, 1529-06-25

English register:

De Schepper announces the arrival in Spain of Søren Nørby, who experienced the perfidy of the Grand Duke of Muscovy [Vasily III] as well as the magnanimity of the King of Poland [Sigismund I]. Despite his hostile military activities, Nørby was well received in Vilnius by the King, the Bishop of Płock [Andrzej Krzycki] and other [Polish dignitaries]. Dantiscus is invited to equal the gesture of his King, to receive Nørby as a friend and to give him his full support.

            received Piacenza, [1529]-10-02
