Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Palencia, [1527]-09-12

English register:

Valdés is pleased that his actions have won Dantiscus’s acceptance. Dantiscus can always count on him. Valdés will follow Dantiscus’s advice regarding the old man [Chancellor Gattinara]. In this situation, he thinks his coming to Palencia proved to be very much needed. He prefers to recount the whole matter to Dantiscus face to face. He doubts peace will be made with France quickly as some in Palencia hope. He thinks the French move is an attempt to divert the emperor’s attention from Italy. There is no news from Hungary or Genoa. He has found comfortable accommodation, he offers it to Dantiscus, too, if he were to come.
