1584, April 11


King Frederick II of Denmark to Christoffer Valckendorff: Jochim Thinne from Hamburg has complained that his five-year license to trade with the Faroes was cancelled, which was not his fault, but because of missteps of his brother-in-law, and asks Valckendorff, who knows the situation the best, to reconsider the cancellation of the trading license.
