Letter #1774

Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-11-16

English register: Dantiscus is replying to Vaca’s letter, which brought back memories of the times of their friendship in Spain in the service of (imperial) Chancellor Mercurino Gattinara. Dantiscus congratulates Vaca on his transfer from the Canary Islands to the wealthier bishopric of Palencia, and informs him of his own transfer to the Warmia bishopric. He asks him to let the emperor know that he is ready to serve him. With respect to Vaca’s recommendation of Diego Gracián de Alderete as a son-in-law, he replies that he will show Gracián his favor at the proper moment, although the marriage was agreed upon against the will of the father, who wanted to bring his daughter to live with him and find a husband for her here.
