Letter #5786

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
[Brussels?], [1531, autumn?]

English register:

Valdés discusses the details of the dinner planned in Dantiscus’ garden for the next day – he informs Dantiscus that he will be there himself, as well as Barrensis [Esteban Gabriel Merino?], while Cobos(?) has made the excuse that the limits of moderation are always exceeded at Dantiscus’, while he prefers to do this eating meat and not fish.
