Personal letter to Damiano dal Borgo, a Veronese patrician, from Lodovico Foscarini of Venice, also called Ludovicus Foscarenus. Possibly written from Mantua. Primarily discusses Pope Pius II and peace efforts in Pannonia (Hungary), referring to the conflict with Venice and Turkey as madness. Foscarini weighs the various options available in dealing with Hungary, and emerges clearly favoring the peace efforts of the Pope, which Foscarini believes will come about partially due to the Pope's wisdom, virtue and piety. Also mentions the King of Bohemia, who at the time was Jiří Poděbrad. Written in 43 long lines. Stored within a near-contemporary paper bifolium.
