Anday a Caregio pallatio bellissimo di esso Cosmo quale visto da ogni canto et delectatomene grandemente non mancho per la polidezza di giardini, che invero sono pur tropo legiadra cosa, quanto per il degno edificio dela casa, ala quale et per camere et per cusine et per sale et per ogni fornimento non mancha piu che si facia ad una dele belle case di questa cita, disnay [desinai] insieme con tuti li sudetti salvo Giohanne di Cosmo, che non volesse sedere ala tavola mia ne anche mangiare, quando laltri per fare servire ognuno. Dopo el disnare essendo immediate partito el S.re M. Sigismundo reductome in una camera con tuta la compagnia oldite cantare con la citara uno Maestro Antonio, che credo che V.Exc.ia debba se non cognoscere, al mancho havere oldito nominare, quale principiato da le prime cose, che V.Exc.ia fece et venuto non solo al fine di quelli nele quale interpuose de grandissime laude di M. Tiberto, ma poy disceso anche in commendatione mia narro ogni cosa con tanta Dignita et modo, chel magiore poeta ne oratore che sia al mundo sel havesse havuto a fare tale acto, forse nonne saria usito con tanta commendatione da ogni canto del dire suo, che in vero fu tale, che ognuno fece signare che maraviglia et maxime quilli che piu docti sono, vedendo loro ultra arte comparatione chel fece, del quale non so se Lucano, ne Dante ne facessero may alcuna di piu bella, miscolare tante hystorie antiche, nome de romani vechi
