Letter #5789

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Palencia, [1527-10-08 — 1527-10-09]

English register:

Valdés and the chancellor [Mercurino Gattinara] are worried that Dantiscus is not going with them to Burgos as it will deprive them of his company and, even worse, they will be unable to give him any asistance. The chancellor is more worried about this than about the gout attack of last night; he tried to intervene with alcalde Ronquillo about allotting Dantiscus some wagons, but it turns out that the relevant authority in this province lies not with Ronquillo but with Leguizamo. They set off early the next morning, they will reach Burgos on Friday. Valdés will give Dantiscus’ letter regarding lodgings to Iureccius, but Dantiscus needs to send a servant there.
