Letter #5749

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Palencia, [1527]-10-07

English register:

Valdés regrets that Dantiscus has decided to stay in Torquemada because he had prepared a place for him in Palencia, moving some of his own things to the chancellor’s [Mercurino Gattinara’s] quarters. Dantiscus doesn’t need a passport to come to Palencia because Valdés' influence will ensure his admittance. The chancellor leaves for Burgos on Wednesday afternoon or early on Thursday morning. Valdés suggests that Dantiscus join the chancellor’s retinue in Torquemada or in Palençuela. He promises to try to arrange for Dantiscus to live right next to him in Burgos. Valdés writes that the emperor gave the chancellor an exceptionally gracious reception, he would rather tell him the details in person. Contrary to Valdés' expectations, it wasn’t Marshal Cilly who was sent to Burgos but master le Borgne. It would be useful for Dantiscus to write to him about lodgings.
