1584, January 30


King Frederick II of Denmark to Christoffer Valckendorff: Joen Heinesson, formerly lawman of the Faroes, has complained that he has been removed from his office without reason, and his brother Mogens Heinesson, who has the trade privilege in the Faroes for five years together with Jörgen Kyd from Copenhagen and Jochim Thim from Hamburg, was accused of having traded with false measures and weights, of which he claims to be innocent. Valckendorff is asked to inform about the matter.
