Letter #1789

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to [Reynaldus STROZZI]
Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-11-16

English register: Dantiscus is replying to a letter from Strozzi, who recommends Diego Gracián (de Alderete) to him as a future son-in-law. Dantiscus declares that Gracián, whom he already valued before, has become even dearer to him after the betrothal, but still he complains that this marriage thwarts his plans to bring his daughter to live with him. He states that if these plans had been carried out, he would have paid Juana’s mother an annual salary. Despite his regret that he will be deprived of direct contact with his daughter, Dantiscus does not intend to show any disfavor to the young couple.
