TO LEONHARDT BEIER Concerning Gertrude von Mylen. January 9, 1526.
Grace and peace in Christ! I am delighted and approve highly of your intention to marry Gertrude von Mylen, if God gives her to you. You have my best wishes for your success. I prefer her in many ways to her companions. Therefore I comply with your request to write her mother.
May the Lord give His blessing. Amen. MARTIN LUTHER .
