||In afternoon-time, when other works was done I did take
Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus
Lucian Horace Ovid Virgil
with me, and
Louis II, le Grand Condé
, did have rides in my sleeve. We went goes to the barn. I made a stop to talk with
Michael Angelo Sanzio Raphael
. Then I did go in to play on the hay. I had hearing of sounds in the stall below. I slid a slide down into the manger of that stall. There was someone I have never had sees of before. He had big eyes and a velvet nose, and he was brownish. When I did land in his manger there, he did look afraid looks. But I just sat quiet in the corner of the manger and reached out handfuls of hay to him. I have knows he is that new
horse I have heard the
say he was going to get. And now he is got. I have likes for him. I told him a poem and I did sing him a song of fleurs de tante, of myosotis et anemone et romarin et iris et éclaire. He did have likes for that song, and the bunches of hay I did hold out to him. And this being the
in 1498, I have give this new saw rel horse for name Girolamo Savonarola. I did tell him his name while I did give him more pats on his velvet nose. I have likes for him.
