Letter #3857

Ioannes DANTISCUS to Isabel [DELGADA]
[Löbau (Lubawa)], 1537-03-16

English register: Dantiscus refuses to send Isabel 200 ducats in exchange for his daughter Juana’s coming to Prussia. He protests to Isabel that she must surely think Juana is not his child if she is trying to sell her to him, as normally the owner does not have to buy his own property. He reproaches Isabel for her meeting with another man in Seville. As a final solution, he offers her an annual salary of 20 ducats if she sends his daughter to him through Ehinger.
            received [ca. 1537-06-30]
