The last chapter does not directly concern Poggio, but publishes letters between two of his most bitter enemies, Niccolo Perotti and Lorenzo Valla. They date from the period of the protracted polemics exchanged between them and him (1451-54). An effort is made to characterise the scribe of these letters, and to place him in the context of humanist education. New information on Valla and Perotti is also integrated into their biographies.
