Katarina, Abbess of the Benedictine monastery in Kulm to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Kulm (Chełmno), 1537-11-20

English register: Citing an excise tax exemption for the convent estate obtained from the King through the Prussian Council, Abbess Katarina and the Benedictine congregation in Kulm (who enclose a copy of the document) claim that the excise tax set for the next St. Andrew’s Day [30 November] does not apply to them. They ask Bishop Dantiscus for help if collection of the tax is attempted.
