Letter #1753

Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-10-25

English register: Dantiscus is replying to Tymmermann’s letter. He states that as long as the office of bishop is vacant, the Chapter has the right to make decisions as to appointments (in this case – of burgraves), but emphasizes that once the election is confirmed the Chapter’s decisions will not be binding for him, and he will appoint officials at his own discretion. He promises that the officials who remain in their posts until his arrival will receive remuneration. Dantiscus gives his permission for the early leaving of the chancellor (Mikołaj Human), but does not assent to the departure of the administrator (of the castle in Lidzbark). He will give just treatment to the administrator’s wishes as to accommodation – he will discuss this upon his arrival.
