Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
s.l., [a few days after 1528-10-12]

English register: Valdés is glad that Dantiscus arrived safely. The chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] has stopped here because he didn’t like his quarters in Pínto. The chancellor feels better. Dantiscus will always be a welcome guest. Valdés invites Dantiscus to dinner the next day; if Dantiscus is unable to come, Valdés will try to visit him later. He is happy about Dantiscus’ gifts, but he can wait for them until Dantiscus' departure. They say that after the imperial army’s victory [over the French army and fleet near Naples], two envoys were sent to the Pope for money – a German and a Spaniard.
