Chapter Summary

In 1535, the public document was sent by the highborn Wirich of Oberstein, the commander-in-chief of the entire force by command of the princes and the three provinces, although he himself did not arrive at the camps until January 18. He sent it through a messenger, for whom he had first secured by letter safe conduct in going to the Gate of St. Maurice and returning. When this messenger was sent to them, townsmen received him with hospitality, awarded him a gift, read the letter and gave a few clumsy oral responses, which were completely irrelevant. On the same day that the letter was delivered, they responded as they had promised after a short deliberation. In it, they strove to show that they were innocent and free of any blame, never having been rebels against their true ruler or expelled him from the city.
