Letter #5767

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
[Brussels], [ca. 1531-09-26]

English register:

Valdés sends Dantiscus a copy of a letter whose original has not been signed yet. Dantiscus will receive it on the same day together with the privileges, at no fee. The king of France [Francis I] will not come to the [imperial] diet because the conditions made by the emperor don’t suit him, namely that he should not mention the changes to the treaty of Cambrai, though the reason Balançon gives officially is the illness of the king’s mother. The emperor will certainly come to Speyer. They say he is leaving in eight days but Valdés doesn’t think it will be sooner than in fifteen days, unless the Roman king [Ferdinand] pushes for it.
