Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
[Valencia], [1528]-05-11

English register:

Valdés tries to appease Dantiscus’ anger at the delay in having his matters dealt with at the emperor’s court. He explains that such is the custom at the court. He has held back Dantiscus’ ill-judged letter to the chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] and has obtained a passport from secretary Covos enabling Dantiscus to travel safely to the court. The vice-chancellor [Balthasar Merklin von Waldkirch], Cornelis [De Schepper] and the others have made it safely to the Netherlands. Valdés is interceding with Dantiscus on behalf of Philip dismissed from his service (because of Eustace [Chapuys?]). He sends his regards to Juan Antonio Marliano.
