Letter #5751

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
[Madrid], [1528-08-19 — 1528-08-31]

English register:

On the advice of his friends Valdés intends to send Erasmus the “shameless Franciscan booklet” [Luis Carvajal, Apologia vitae monasticae diluens nugas Erasmi, Salamanca, 1528], so he asks Dantiscus to lend him a copy because he has none at this time. The package will be delivered to Erasmus by the messenger who brought Erasmus’ letter to Valdés dated April 24 [1528, a letter not recorded by Allen]. Valdés regrets he has no time to meet with Dantiscus because he would like to tell him about the campaign of the “papists” in connection with his “Roman dialogue.”
