#2269-To the Council at Augsburg

To the honorable and discreet Lords, the Mayor and Councelors of the city of Augsburg, my gracious Lords and Friends.

G.u.peace in Christ. Honorable,discerning, dear Lords and Friends! I have received your writing along with that of your preachers and with joy understood that the pending Concord pleases and want to announce the same to my most gracious Lord and others and that they will also, as God wills, be pleased thereby. Your F.(you discerning ones) will stay with it and proceed until it finally comes to a conclusion and meanwhile help so that with the people in time and with reasoned instruction the truth will prevail and where there is yet error and misunderstanding in someone's heart it will be dispelled. Herewith be commended to God, Amen. Martinus Luther.
