Letter #7267

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] & [Tiedemann GIESE] to [Sigismund I Jagiellon]
Heilsberg (Lidzbark Warmiński), 1539-08-05

English register:

Dantiscus and Giese take the Gdańsk’s townspeople’s side in their conflict with Hieronim Żelisławski, who has been disturbing the public peace and obstructing free trade because of his personal hatreds. The bishops ask the King to intervene. They want Żelisławski to resolve his conflicts through legal action, and if he refuses he should be pursued like a criminal.
