Letter #325

Valladolid, 1527-02-03

English register:

De Schepper submits his reply to some questions by the Chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] to the advice of Dantiscus, before sending it to the Chancellor. He requests discretion when returning the letter.

De Schepper is grateful for the financial support he received from the Chancellor, while waiting for news from his Antwerp bankers. He also sends Dantiscus a more recent letter from the Chancellor, with commentary attached to it.

Louis of Flanders has promised to recommend De Schepper to the Emperor [Charles V] for a commission in Italy, as he will be accompanying the Chancellor there. Louis of Flanders advised him to approach the Chancellor first.

De Schepper is recovering from an illness, which is currently preventing him from acting.
