Letter #1771

Ioannes DANTISCUS to Fernando de GUEVARA
Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-11-16

English register: Dantiscus is replying to Guevara’s letter containing a recommendation of Diego Gracián (de Alderete), whom he already knew, as his future son-in-law. Dantiscus states that though the marriage was agreed upon without his consent, there is nothing else he can do but refrain from opposing God’s will. He promises that he will let his daughter’s husband know at the proper time what his view of the situation is.
