s.l., [1526-09-18 — 1526-12-10 or 1527-01-26 — 1527-08-23 or 1527-10-18 — 1528-12-17 or 1529-04-20 — 1529-07-27 or 1529-08-12 — 1529-10-18 or 1529-11-05 — 1530-04-19 or 1530-06-26 — 1530-11-23 or 1530-12-19 — 1531-06-15 or 1531-06-30 — 1531-11-28 or 1531-12-12 — 1532-01-17 or 1532-04-06 — 1532-07-07]

English register:

Valdés wanted to visit Dantiscus the day before because he had something to discuss with him, but his duties prevented him from coming. He would gladly invite him to dinner but because he has little time to prepare, he will not be able to honour him as a Spaniard should honour a Pole, and such an esteemed envoy to boot, so he will come to dinner at Dantiscus' place instead.
