Letter #348

Palamos, 1527-05-27

English register:

The Chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] has decided to depart the same day, despite the threat of an attack by the French. He plans to return by September. Meanwhile De Schepper will continue to advocate Dantiscus' cause. There is no further news. De Schepper will write to Dantiscus from Genoa or Monaco. The Chancellor is in good shape. They are sailing with a carrack, a galleon and three brigantines.

De Schepper asks Dantiscus to wish them Godspeed, and to recommend him to the Vice-Chancellor [Balthasar Merklin von Waldkirch] and Dantiscus’ paramour [Isabel Delgada], and, in a postscript, also to the Margrave [Johann Albrecht of Brandenburg] and to the Count Palatine.
