sale of Barbary horse


October 8

on Saturday

My brother Gostanzo won the Palio at Santa Liperata, and this was the first that he had won with his horse called "il Draghetto" (the Little Dragon). He had bought two horses from Barbary: one called "il Pelligrino" (the Pilgrim) he sold to the Count of Urbino, getting 100 ducats for it.

The prisoners of the Stinche escaped. They opened the doors with the keys given them by one of the warders, called Domenico di Cristofano. They got out at about 7 in the night (3 a.m.), the warder also escaping.
