War between Burgundy and Friburg in 1475. 

At the end of the Canon of Avicenna, copied by Hayyim ben Joseph 
Menahem Bn«lD, finished the 9th of Tebet 5236-1475, MS. Turin, 
Codex CV. (Catal. B. Peyron), there is a note which mentions a war 
between the masters of Burgundy and Friburg, in the same year, 
which is difficult to read. Wolf {Bibl. Heb. IV., p. 931) gives a Latin 
translation of it, which is not correct.

A Plague in Italy in 1539. 
At the end of a Mahazor for Rosh has-Shanah and Jom Kippur, in 
the MS. H., v. 8 of the BiMioteca Casanateme, at Borne, we read the 
following passage concerning a plague in Italy in the year 5293-1533 :
