Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
s.l., [1528-10 — 1528-12-13]

English register:

Valdés found out that the chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] hasn’t received Dantiscus’ memo from the emperor. Valdés has recounted the memo’s contents to the chancellor and has been promised the matter will be dealt with. Meanwhile, the chancellor suffered an attack of fever and didn’t meet with the emperor. This will make Lalemand happy, because he was under a serious threat. Valdés promises to obtain a copy of the endowment (? translatio). He will try to visit Dantiscus at dinnertime but asks him not to wait.
