TO LEONHARDT BEIER
Luther asks Beier’s intercession for a daughter. October 8, 1525.
Grace and peace in Christ ! Among the other maidens who lately escaped from the cloister, and who are staying with me, is a certain Gertrude von Mylen, whose mother or grandmother lives beside you in Guben, to whom she writes by this messenger. Now it is your duty to admonish her to receive her daughter or grand-daughter, or if she refuse to do so, I shall see to her trousseau, which might perhaps afterwards offend her.
Farewell, and pray for me. MARTIN LUTHER .
