Letter #1782

[Ioannes DANTISCUS] to Alfonso POLO
Löbau (Lubawa), 1537-11-16

English register: Dantiscus is replying to Polo’s letter containing a recommendation of Diego Gracián (de Alderete) and his future bride (Dantiscus’ daughter Juana), whose betrothal Polo gave an official blessing. Dantiscus expresses the wish that the couple be happy, but he is not entirely pleased about his daughter’s marriage because it was agreed upon without him. He declares that at the proper time, once the marriage is consummated, Gracián can expect his favor. As for the salary that Polo writes about, Dantiscus will reply to Gracián directly.
