To a Dr Giacomo Zuccoli, probably in Faenza, announcing that he will gladly talk to Cardinal Erminio Valenti concerning a vacant position as canon and consoling Zuccoli on the death of his uncle: "Fo volentieri l'uff.o da lei richiestomi col Sig.e Card.e Valenti per la vacanza di q.llo Can.co et come le desidero ogni bene q.la memoria dell'amor et della virtù del sig.e Gregorio suo Zio, che habbia [!] requie et per il suo proprio merito, cosí mi sarà cara, ch'ella resti in ciò consolata".

The recipient's uncle Gregorio Zuccoli was a sacristan and chronicler in Feanza. Cardinal Erminio Valenti (1564-1618) served as bishop of Faenza from 1605 to 1618.
