The article examines the document held by State Archive in Stockholm - a letter by Riga manufacture owner Rutger Niederhoff to Royal Court in Stockholm from the early 1650s, appealing for a just resolution of his lasting conflict with Riga Town Council. The Council fined Niederhoff for a seemingly illegal building on the old fortification wall. The article compares the facts of the mid-17th century with the present situation on the corresponding building plot in Old Riga; a copy of the correspondence in German, as well as Latvian translation, is added to the publication.
