Letter #402

Bermeo, 1528-03-08

English register:

De Schepper and his company are ready to set sail from Bermeo to Flanders. Together with some companions they have procured a small cutter, which sails fast enough to escape potential enemies. He travels together with the Lord of Montfort. De Schepper has taken command of the small ship, since the Vice-Chancellor [Balthasar Merklin von Waldkirch] is travelling on board the larger vessel.

De Schepper will write to Dantiscus upon his arrival in Flanders. He conveys the greetings of the Vice-Chancellor, Ravesteiner and Georg Reyngher, and recommends himself to the Chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] and their mutual friends.
