These two great personalities simply recorded the facts; they did not create any descriptive literary embellishments.
CC Antya 14.9, Translation and Purport:

These two great personalities (Svarūpa Dāmodara and Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī) recorded the activities of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu moment by moment. They described these activities briefly as well as elaborately in their notebooks.

For future reference, we should remember that Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī recorded the pastimes briefly, whereas Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī recorded them elaborately. These two great personalities simply recorded the facts; they did not create any descriptive literary embellishments.
