Summary expansion
In the first, Rosello and his Bolognese friend Marco Montalbano discuss desirable qualities of a servant, such as honesty, taciturnity, promptness, sound kitchen skills, and sexual discipline. Other skills he must possess include maintaining a well-stocked medicine chest, monitoring the selection and preparation of food, extending liberal hospitality and unstintingly serving the community. The second dialogue, filled with classical references and metaphors from the animal kingdom, looks at court life, and its interlocutors concur that "patience is the food of the courtier."
