Epistolae ad diuersos p. 473.

  • Liège.
  • ⟨August 1514.⟩

[A younger branch of the Borsselen family (cf. Epp. 80 and 93 introd.) acquired the lordship of Hoogstraeten in 1437 (Stokvis iii. 10, geneal. 10, 16); so that Erasmus' ancient friendship with this Andrew, who was perhaps a dependant on the same footing as Peter of Courtebourne (Ep. 169), may have dated back to the Tournehem days.]
