#2378-Elector Johann Friedrich to ML

(This letter is summarized by the St.Louis Edition)
The Elector orders Luther to endeavor that the disharmony between D. Jakob Schenk of Freiberg and the Wittenberg theologians Jonas and Melancthon  be brought to harmony because the same is an occasion of ridicule by the opponents especially Duke Georg who brings it forth and others who want to bring harm to the Gospel.- Burkhardt oberves that the conflict about the Sacrament arose because Schenk at times administered the Sacrament under both forms and then sometimes under one.
