Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Zaragoza, 1529-04-10

English register:

Valdés puts aside his resentment and anger, happy at Dantiscus’ letter and his decision to return to the imperial court. Dantiscus’ messenger received the passport for him immediately, he didn’t have to wait as had been the case when arranging the documents in connection with his leaving Spain. The emperor leaves Saragossa on Wednesday at the latest, the chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] will remain there until April 19. Valdés suggests that Dantiscus come before the chancellery departs, this will make it easier for him to communicate with the Aragonese.
