This part includes sonnets by Gabriele Zinano and Sarra Copia Sulam's response to one of them. Leon Modena, the rabbi closely involved in Sulam's biography, was privy to the content of the letters she wrote to Ansaldo Cebà and received from him, and to her problems with her adversaries. Also included in this part are a dedication to Copia from Modena's play Ester (1619) and Modena's epitaph for her tombstone (1641).
