It’s funny that you should mention Troilo Orsini. He attended the salon again yesterday evening. What an elegant and eloquent gentleman he is. It’s funny how different cousins can be. Perhaps it is the difference between Rome and Florence?
Your grace, it was such a sweet pleasure to read my work before such a luminous audience, including Vincenzo Borghini and Simone da Fortuna of the Florentine Academy, the humanist Pier Vettori, philologists Lionardo Salviati and Giovan Battista Deti and others.
