Letter #5762

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
[Granada?], [1526-09-18 — 1526-12-16?]

English register:

Valdés jokingly complains to Dantiscus that he has been flooded with letters because of Dantiscus’ Pasquillus. He warns he will refer bothersome correspondents straight to him. He sends Dantiscus a letter about Pasquillus he received from a Spanish noble, a relative of the infantry commander, author of Talichristia [Álvar Gómez de Ciudad Real]. Valdés offers the opinion that for a Spaniard, Gómez is quite well educated and he asks Dantiscus to reply to Gómez’ letter in his name. He asks him to make haste because the messenger is leaving that evening.
