Letter #5741

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
[Granada], [1526-09-18 — 1526-10-11]

English register:

Valdés thanks Dantiscus for sending him the hymn; reading it offered a moment of relief in his hard work. He promises to copy the text personally and to burn the copy sent by Dantiscus. He regrets that the chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara], having sent some of his servants to Italy, has tasked him with so much work that unfortunately he is unable to meet with Dantiscus right now.
