King Christian III of Denmark to the lawman, governor and inhabitants of the Faroes: has heard from Thomas Koppen that skipper Herman Renicken, Hans Loes and Hans Siiderborg have traded on the islands, although only Koppen is allowed to trade there, and that they have claimed that Christian III was not the rightful king. Therefore it is asked to safeguard Koppen's privileges on the islands.
