1581, October 27
King Frederick II of Denmark to Christoffer Valckendorff: Jochim Thim, the royal factor in Hamburg, who has a license to trade in the Faroes, has appeared before the king together with Magnus Heinason, who held a license before and would like to keep it. Because the Faroese have often complained about the lack of ships and imported commodities, it is decided to let them share a license, together with a citizen from Copenhagen.
