Abstract: This document includes a translation of a letter written by Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Valette who, due to the unrest brought upon by the Turkish Siege of 1565, requests help with the defence of the Maltese Islands. According to him, Malta was still weak and hence susceptible to an additional and possibly more severe attack from Turkish Sultan Selim II.
