Letter #5755

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
s.l., [1528-09-01 — 1528-12-16?]

English register:

Valdés praises the epigram Dantiscus sent him as a royal gift, more precious than anything else. He regrets that the old man’s [Mercurino Gattinara’s] “importunate importunity” (importuna importunitas) prevents him from visiting his friend. He asks to be informed about what Cato Pratensis [Lodewijk van Praet] thinks of the epigram.
