But when she saw all her paines sortto no purpose, and darke night drawing swiftly on, hope and dismayraising infinite perturbations, made her yet to be somewhat respectiveof her selfe, and therefore departing from the sea-shore, she returnedto the solitary place, where she used to sigh and mourne alone byher selfe.波音下载波音下载
波音下载The night being over-past with infinite feares and afrights, andbright day saluting the world againe, with the expence of ninehoures and more, she fell to her former fruitlesse travailes. Beingsomewhat sharply bitten with hunger, because the former day andnight shee had not tasted any foode: shee made therefore a benefitof necessity, and fed on the greene hearbes so well as she could,not without any piercing afflictions, what should become of her inthis extraordinary misery. As shee walked in these pensivemeditations, she saw a Goate enter into a Cave, and (within a whileafter) come forth againe, wandring along thorow the woods. Whereuponshe stayed, and entred where she saw the beast issue foorth, where shefound two young Kids, yeaned (as it seemed) the selfesame day, whichsight was very pleasing to her, and nothing in that distresse couldmore content her.波音下载波音下载波音下载As yet, she had milke freshly running in both her brests, byreason of her so late delivery in child bed; wherefore shee laydowne unto the two yong Kids, and taking them tenderly in her armes,suffered each of them to sucke a teate, whereof they made not anyrefusall, but tooke them as lovingly as their dammes, and from thattime forward, they made no distinguishing betweene their damme andher. Thus this unfortunate Lady, having found some company in thissolitary desart, fed on herbes and roots, drinking faire runningwater, and weeping silently to her selfe, so often as she remembredher husband, children, and former dayes past in much better manner.Heere she resolved now to live and dye, being at last deprived both ofthe damme and yonger Kids also, by theyr wandering further into theneere adjoyning Woods, according to their naturall inclinations;whereby the poore distressed Ladie became more savage and wilde in herdaily conditions, then otherwise shee would have bene.波音下载波音下载After many monthes were over-passed, at the very same place whereshe tooke landing; by chance, there arrived another small vessell ofcertaine Pisans, which remained there divers daies. In this Barkewas a Gentleman, named Conrado de Marchesi Malespini, with his holyand vertuous wife, who were returned backe from a Pilgrimage, havingvisited all the sanctified places that then were in the kingdome ofApulia, and now were bound homeward to their owne abiding. ThisGentleman, for the expelling of melancholly perturbations, oneespeciall day amongst other, with his wife, servants, and waintinghounds, wandred up into the Iland not far from the place of MadamBeritolaes desert dwelling. The hounds questing after game, at lasthappened on the two Kids where they were feeding, and (by this time)had attained to indifferent growth; and finding themselves thuspursued by the hounds, fled to no other part of the wood, then tothe cave where Beritola remained, and seeming as if they sought tobe rescued only by her, she sodainly caught up a staffe, and forcedthe hounds thence to flight.

When(uppon her request) Conrado had checkt backe his hounds, theyprevailed so much by earnest intreaties, to know what she was, and thereason of her living there; that she intirely related her quality,unfortunate accidents, and strange determination for living there.Which when the Gentleman had heard, who very well knew her husband,compassion forced teares from his eyes, and earnestly he laboured bykinde perswasions, to alter so cruell a deliberation; making anhonourable offer, for conducting her home to his owne dwelling,where shee should remaine with him in noble respect, as if she werehis owne sister, without parting from him, till Fortune should smileas fairely on her, as ever she had done before.波音下载详情
