Mercurino Arborio di GATTINARA to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Tordesillas, 1524-10-10

English register: Gattinara informs Dantiscus that despite the emperor’s illness, he has obtained his consent to a brief audience that is to take place the next morning. He advises Dantiscus to set off on horseback [from Valladolid] at 5 a.m. He invites him to his quarters for a rest after the journey. He promises to accompany Dantiscus to the audience and then invites him to lunch. He suggests that Dantiscus return that same afternoon to Valladolid, where he himself intends to go the next morning. There he’ll take care of the Polish envoy’s expedition.
