#1999-To Justus Menius

__Here there is nothing new outside of the fact that Michael Stiefel with his seven trumpets has prophesied the Judgment Day in this year around All Saints Day while he previously to me set forth St.Michael's Day, and a mob has been incited in those thorn bushes and swamps (Haide). For this reason we have summoned the man to us today. Pray for us and be right well with you in Christ. 1533, on the Tuesday after Bartholomew (26 Aug.). Martin Luther,D.
NOTE: Stiefel was pastor in the Lochau Haide now Annaberg. A crowd is gathering around him waiting for the End. See letter to Brismann by Weller on Nov.17,1533.
