King Frederick II of Denmark to Christoffer Valckendorff: has received the complaints of the Faroese about a lack of imported commodities, whereupon Magnus Heinason has excused himself for arriving to the islands too late after the Hamburg merchants, and that the need cannot have been so high since he left a large quantity of flour on the islands the year before.
