Letter #5791

Alfonso de VALDÉS to Ioannes DANTISCUS
[Brussels?], shortly before [1531?]-11-11

English register:

Valdés sends Dantiscus some Martinianum wine from Barrensis [Esteban Gabriel Merino] for the feast of St. Martin. Barrensis says that if Dantiscus doesn’t send for it every day, he will send him a cartful. Valdés is returning the letters of Erasmus [there could be originals or any letters published in print] as well as a few of his own and the archdeacon’s [Francisco de Mendoza y Bobadilla?]. He encourages Dantiscus to read the letters as he waits for him to come and visit.
