Two letters signed by Maximilian II, both with a generic greeting (Lieber getreuer). In the first document, dated Prague 30 March 1570, Maximilian is requesting hospitality for his emissary (kaijserlichen Hofrath) and entourage, who are en route to the imperial diet (Reichsversamblung) that he has called, to be held in Speyer, 22 May; he also makes reference to a previous Reichstag in Augsburg. The second letter, dated Vienna 8 May 1576, concerns a judicial matter involving a certain Peter Kaiser, which has been referred to the imperial court (kaiserlichen Cammergericht); Maximilian is apparently responding to a communication (bericht) received from the addressee, who is a relative of Kaiser. The second document bears an imperial seal.
