                        quam sue rei dominium & arbitrum esse. Ne alius alieni fructum laboris
                        ad commodum suum transferat huiusmodi supplicationibus inclinati.
Inhibemus omnibus & singulis sub excommunicationis late sententie: Subditis vero no=

mere aut alibi impressa vendere seu venalia habere audeat seu presumat. Mandantes
omnibus locorum ordinariis, eorumque in spiritualibus Vicariis: ut presentes nostras
ubique observent & exequantur: faciantque ab aliis plene exequi & observari. Quarum
quidem Transumptis manu Notarii publici subscriptis & sigillo persone in dignitate
Ecclesiastica constitute munitis plenam fidem ubique tam in iudicio que extra adhiberi debere

            Ad Divum Cle. vii. Pon. Max.

Iuppiter Ambiguas hominum diffundere sortes
      Dat Celo, spectans undique quicquid agat
Interdum precibus flexus constringit habenas,
      Et quem formavit, scit cohibere polum.
At prenoße cupit prudens, ut casibus obstet,
      Venturum, Similem quod facit eße Iovi.
Segregat atque homines prudentia sola faturi


[2nd column:]

      A Brutis, presens nam simul ipsa vident.
Utque minus distat Brutis ignavia vulgi,
      Sic propior superis est quoque plura videns,
Sepe etiam causas renuens prenoscere rerum
      Ex casu regitur, nec putat esse deos.
Hinc ruit imprudens, Sapiens scit pergere tutus,
      Nam procul omne malum prospicit, omne bonum.
Excellit fortem sapiens, ex numinis instar
      Presicitur Turbis, qui metuenda cavet,
Iudicium Fortuna tuum sectata supremo
      Hinc est, statuit te residere loco.
Sume igitur varie Triumphum sanctißime Sortis
      Quam poteris populo fundere more Iovis.
