And when dinnertime came, Thorello in his strange disguise went with the Abbot to theBridegroomes house, where he was lookt on with admiration of all theguests, but not knowne or suspected by any one; because the Abbotreported him to be a Sarracine, and sent by the Soldane (in Ambassage)to the King of France. Thorello was seated at a by-table, but directlyopposite to the new Bride, whom hee much delighted to looke on, andeasily collected by her sad countenance, that shee was scarcely wellpleased with this new nuptialls.

下载At such time as Thorello thought it convenient, to approve how farrehe was falne out of her remembrance; he took the ring which she gavehim at his departure, and calling a young Page that waited on none butthe Bride, said to him in Italian: Faire youth, goe to the Bride,and saluting her from me, tell her, it is a custome observed in myCountry, that when any Stranger (as I am heere) sitteth before a newmarried Bride, as now shee is, in signe that hee is welcome to herfeast, she sendeth the same Cup (wherein she drinketh her selfe)full of the best wine, and when the stranger hath drunke so much ashim pleaseth, the Bride then pledgeth him with all the rest. ThePage delivered the message to the Bride, who, being a woman ofhonourable disposition, and reputing him to be a Noble Gentleman, totestifie that his presence there was very acceptable to her, sheecommanded a faire Cuppe of gold (which stood directlie before her)to bee neately washed, and when it was filled with excellent Wine,caused it to bee carried to the stranger, and so it was done.易迅易迅彩App下载下载Thorello having drunke a heartie draught to the Bride, conveyedthe Ring into the Cuppe, before any person could perceive it, andhaving left but small store of Wine in it, covered the Cuppe, and sentit againe to the Bride, who received it very gracioasly, and to honourthe Stranger in his Countries custome, dranke up the rest of the Wine,and espying the Ring, shee tooke it forth undescried by any: Knowingit to be the same Ring which shee gave Signior Thorello at his partingfrom her; she fixed her eyes often on it, and as often on him, whomshe thought to be a stranger, the cheerfull bloud mounting up into hercheeks, and returning againe with remembrance to her heart, that(howsoever thus disguised) he only was her husband.易迅下载Like one of Bacchus Froes, up furiously she started, and throwingdowne the Table before her, cried out aloud: This is my Lord andHusband, this truely is my Lord Thorello. So running to the Tablewhere he sate, without regard of all the riches thereon, down shethrew it likewise, and clasping her armes about his necke, hung somainly on him (weeping, sobbing, and kissing him) as she could notbe taken off by any of the company, nor shewed any moderation inthis excesse of passion, till Thorello spake, and entreated her tobe more patient, because this extremity was over-dangerous for her.Thus was the solemnitic much troubled, but every one there very gladand joyfull for the recovery of such a famous and worthy Knight, whointreated them all to vouchsafe him silence, and so related all hisfortunes to them, from the time of his departure, to the instanthoure. Concluding withall, that hee was no way offended with the newBridegroome, who upon the so constant report of his death, deserved noblame in making election of his wife.
易迅下载The Bridegroome, albeit his countenance was somewhat cloudie, to seehis hope thus disappointed: yet granted freely, that Adalietto wasThorellos wife in equitie, and bee could not justly lay any claime toher. She also resigned the Crown and Rings which she had so latelyreceived of her new Spouse, and put that on her finger which she foundin the Cup, and that Crowne was set upon her head, in honor sent herfrom great Saladine. In which triumphant manner, she left the newBridegrooms abiding, and repayred home to Thorellos house, withsuch pompe and magnificence as never had the like been seene inPavia before, all the Citizens esteeming it as a miracle, that theyhad so happily recovered Signior Thorello againe.易迅THE EIGHT DAY, THE SECOND NOVELL详情
