Letter #757

Iacobus ROBBIUS Aldenardus to Ioannes DANTISCUS
Ghent (Gandavum), 1532-02-23

English register:

When he returned last night from work, Robbius found Michiel de Vriendt at the table with Karel and Joost Uutenhove. He appreciates him even more because he is the representative of his hero Dantiscus. De Vriendt let him know that Dantiscus is in good health, and offered to take a letter from him to Dantiscus when he left shortly after breakfast (prandium). As De Vriendt will not delay his departure, Robbius has skipped his breakfast and suppressed his hunger in order to send greetings to Dantiscus.

He would like to write more, but there is no time to do so. He has only one request: since someone of Dantiscus’ importance deigned to include his unworthy person in his daily environment, Robbius would like to remain recommended to him in the future. He is at Dantiscus’ disposal, along with all that he possesses.
