This chapter discusses several letters by and to Isotta Nogarola (1418–1466), an Italian-born French author. The letters discussed are mostly to Venice. Nicolò Venier, a young Venetian nobleman, wrote to praise the two sisters—the last time the two would be addressed jointly in the extant letter collections. In one of the letters, Isotta Nogarola praises the great achievements of Cardinal Giuliano Cesarini, a prince of a church, who had encouraged her to write him. In closing, Isotta asks for favor of Cesarini toward the Nogarola family and especially her brother Leonardo who was to become a priest. Nogarola politely responded to the young Venetian who had written her a letter of enthusiastic praise having heard of her fame and examined the letters to Jacopo Foscari that she and her sister Ginevra had written.
