I guess there's a better way than to clone the repository again. See

Indeed, I just verified that using your older pretty2.patch. Maybe it
only applies the first patch in the mail. But on the other hand, that
patch contained a hunk that changed the same section the other patch in
the mail created. So in theory that should have failed then. So it
seems it applies all patches as one single commit and takes just the
message from the top-most patch.
I think that problem doesn't arise when using git because git
format-patch creates one mail per commit, never a mail with many
