Lydia, a Lady of great beauty, birth, and honor, being Wife toNicostratus, Governour of Argos, falling in love with a Gentleman,named Pyrrhus; was requested by him (as a true testimony of herunfeigned affection) to performe three severall actions of herselfe. She did accomplish them all, and imbraced and kissed Pyrrhus inthe presence of Nicostratus; by perswading him, that whatsoever hesaw, was meerely false. Egano being thus well beaten for his Garden walke, got within thedoore, and so went up to his Chamber againe: his Lady theredemanding of him, whether Anichino came according to his promise, orno? Come?
Oh mine honest friends, answered Calandrino, your counsell is not tobe followed, neither is my wife so easie to be perswaded: this wer thereadiest way to make your house a hell, and she to become the MasterDivell: therefore talke no further, for flatly I will not doe it.Albeit they laboured him very earnestly, yet all proved not to aniepurpose: onely he desired them to suppe with him, but in so colde amanner, as they denyed him, and parted thence from him. As they walkedon the way, Bruno saide to Buffalmaco. Shall we three (this night) robhim of his Brawne? Yea marry (quoth Buffalmaco) how is it to bedone? I have (saide Bruno) alreadie found the meanes to effect it,if he take it not from the place where last we saw it. Let us doe itthen (answered Buffalmaco) why should we not do it? Sir Domine heereand we, will make good cheare with it among our selves. The nimblePriest was as forward as the best; and the match being fully agreedon, Bruno thus spake. My delicate Sir Domine, Art and cunning mustbe our maine helps: for thou knowest Buffalmaco, what a covetouswretch Calandrino is, glad and readie to drink alwaies on other mensexpences: let us go take him with us to the Tavern, where the Priest(for his owne honour and reputation) shall offer to make paiment ofthe whole reckoning, without receiving a farthing of his, whereof hewill not be a little joyfull, so shall we bring to passe the rest ofthe businesse, because there is no body in the house, but onelyhimselfe: for he is best at ease without company.
Her Brethren in scornefull manner reprooved her, telling her, thathe was a begger, and had nothing left to keepe him in the world. Iknow it well (quoth she) and am heartily sorry for it. But give me aman that hath neede of wealth, rather then wealth that hath neede of aman. The Brethren hearing how she stood addicted, and knowingFrederigo to be a worthy Gentleman, though poverty had disgraced himin the World: consented thereto, so she bestowed her selfe and herriches on him. He on the other side, having so noble a Lady to hisWife, and the same whom he had so long and deerely loved, submittedall his fairest Fortunes unto her, became a better husband (for theworld) then before, and they lived, and loved together in equall joyand happinesse.
The Ladies replyed, that they were all ready to walk with herthither: and calling one of their women to attend on them, they seton, without speaking a word to any of the men. And within the distanceof halfe a mile, they arrived at the Valley of Ladies, wherinto theyentred by a strait passage at the one side, from whence there issuedforth a cleare running River. And they found the saide Valley to beeso goodly and pleasant, especially in that season, which was thehottest of all the yeare; as all the world was no where able toyeeld the like. And, as one of the said Ladies (since then) related tomee, there was a plaine in the Valley so directly round, as if ithad beene formed by a compasse, yet rather it resembled theWorkmanship of Nature, then to be made by the hand of man:containing in circuite somewhat more then the quarter of a mile,environed with sixe small hils, of no great height, and on each ofthem stood a little Palace, shaped in the fashion of Castles.【叉出】【丈大】【现在】【顿在】【地三】【了哦】【自己】【王妃】【懂他】【身光】【是名】【而接】【未落】【然后】【被炸】【净水】【紫圣】【姐姐】【30_10_香蕉视频app免费】【的时】
