安卓I am sure Andrea, that you greatly marvell at me, in gracing youwith this solemne and kinde entertainment, and why I should so melt myselfe in sighes and teares, at a man that hath no knowledge of mee, orperhaps, sildome or never heard any speeches of mee: but you shallinstantly receive from mee matter to augment your greater marvaile,meeting heere with your owne Sister, beyond all hope or expectation ineyther of us both. But seeing that Heaven hath beene so gracious tome, to let mee see one of my Brethren before I dye (though gladly Iwould have seene them all) which is some addition of comfort to me,and that which (happily) thou hast never heard before, in plaine andtruest manner, I will reveale unto thee.大发棋牌安卓手机不能下马手机
下马Piero, my Father and thine, dwelt long time (as thou canst notchoose but to have understood) in Palermo; where, through thebounty, and other gracious good parts remaining in him, he was muchrenowned, and to this day, is no doubt remembred, by many of hisloving Friends and Wellwillers. Among them that most intimatelyaffected Piero, my mother (who was Gentlewoman, and at that time awidow) did deerest of all other love him; so that: forgetting thefeare of her Father, Brethren, yea, and her owne honour, they becameso privately acquainted, that I was begotten, and am heere now such asthou seest me. Afterward, occasions so befalling our Father, toabandon Palermo, and returne to Perouse, he left my mother and mehis little daughter, never after (for ought that I could learne)once remembring either her or me: so that (if he had not beene myFather) I could have much condemned him, in regard of hisingratitude to my mother, and love which hee ought to have shewne meas his childe, being borne of no Chamber-maide, neyther of a Cittysinner; albeit I must needes say, that she was blame-worthy, withoutany further knowledge of him (rioved onely thereto by most loyalaffection) to commit both her selfe, and all the wealth shee had, intohis hands: but things ill done, and so long time since, are moreeasily controulled, then amended.Being left so young at Palermo, and growing (well neere) to thestature as now you see me; my Mother (being wealthy) gave me inmarriage to one of the Gergentes Family, a Gentleman, and of greatrevennues, who in his love to me and my mother, went and dwelt atPalermo: where falling into the Guelphes Faction, and making one inthe enterprize with Charles our King; it came to passe, that they werediscovered to Fredericke King of Arragon, before their intent could beput in execution: Whereupon, we were enforced to flye from Sicily,even when my hope stoode fairely, to have beene the greatest Lady inall the Island. Packing up then such few things as wee could take withus, (few I may well call them, in regard of our wealthy possessions,both in Pallaces, Houses, and Lands, all which we were constrainedto forgo:) we made our recourse to this Citty, where we found KingCharles so benigne and gracious to us, that recompencing the greaterpart of our losses, he bestowed Lands and houses on us here, besidea continuall large pension to my husband your brother in Law, asheereafter himselfe shall better acquaint you withal. Thus came Ihither, and thus remaine here, where I am able to welcome my brotherAndrea, thankes more to Fortune, then any friendlinesse in him. Withwhich words she embraced and kissed him many times, sighing andweeping as she did before.Andrea hearing this Fable so artificially delivered, composed frompoint to point with such likely protestations, without faltring orfailing in any one words utterance; and remembring perfectly fortruth, that his Father had formerly dwelt at Palermo; knowing also (bysome sensible feeling in himselfe) the custome of young people, whoare easily conquered by affection in their youthfull heate, seeingbeside the tears, trembling speeches, and earnest embracings of thiscunning commodity; he tooke all to be true by her thus spoken, andupon her silence, thus replyed. Lady, let it not seeme strange to you,that your words have raysed marvell in me, because (indeed) I had noknowledge of you, even no more then as if I had never seene you: neveralso having heard my father speak either of you or your mother (forsome considerations best known unto himselfe:) or if at any time heused such language, either my youth then, or defective memory since,hath utterly lost it. But truely, it is no little joy and comfort tome, to finde a sister here, where I had no such hope or expectation,and where also myselfe am a meere stranger. For to speake my mindefreely of you, and the perfections gracefully appearing in you Iknow not any man of how great repute or qualitie soever, but you maywell beseeme his acceptance, much rather then mine, that am but a meanMerchant. But faire Sister, I desire to be resolved in one thing, towit; by what means you had understanding of my being in this City?whereto readily she returned him this answer.棋牌大发棋牌安卓手机不能下马安卓Brother, a poore Woman of this City, whom I employ sometimeshoushold occasions, came to mee this morning, and (having seene you)tolde me, that shee dwelt a long while with our Father, both atPalermo and Perouse. And because I held it much better beseeming mycondition, to have you visite me in mine owne dwelling, then I to comesee you at a common Inne, I made the bolder to send for you hither.After which words, in very orderly manner, she enquired of hischiefest kindred and friends, calling them readily by their propernames, according to her former instructions. Whereto Andrea still madeher answere, confirming thereby his beliefe of her the morestrongly, and crediting whatsoever she saide, farre better thenbefore.手机下马Their conference having long time continued, and the heate of theday being somewhat extraordinary, she called for Greeke wine, andbanquetting stuffe, drinking to Andrea; and he pledging her verycontentedly. After which, he would have returned to his lodging,because it drew neere supper time; which by no meanes shee wouldpermit, but seeming more then halfe displeased, shee saide. Now Iplainely perceive brother, how little account you make of me,considering, you are with your owne Sister, who (you say) you neversaw before, and in her owne House, whether you should alwayes resortwhen you come to this City; and would you now refuse her, to goe andsup at a common Inne? Beleeve me Brother, you shall sup with me, foralthough my Husband is now from home, to my no littlediscontentment: yet you shall find Brother, that his wife, can bid youwelcome, and make you good cheere beside.
棋牌安卓Now was Andrea so confounded this extremity of courtesie, that heknew not what to say, but onely thus replied. I love you as a Sisterought to be loved, and accept of your exceeding kindnesse: but if Ireturne not to my lodging, I shall wrong mine Host and his gueststoo much, because they will not sup untill I come. For that (quothshee) we have a present remedy, one of my servants shall goe andgive warning, whereby they shall not tarry your comming. Albeit, youmight doe me a great kindnesse, to send for your friends to sup withus here, where I assure ye, they shall finde that your Sister (foryour sake) will bid them welcome, and after supper, you may allwalke together to your Inne. Andrea answered, that he had no suchfriends there, as should be so burthenous to her: but seeing she urgedhim so farre, he would stay to sup with her, and referred himselfesolely to her disposition.手机Secretly she sent a faithfull Chambermaide of her owne, to greeteAnastasio on her behalfe; humbly entreating him te come see her:because now she was absolutely determined, to give him satisfaction inall which (with honour) he could request of her. Whereto Anastasioanswered, that he accepted her message thankfully, and desired noother favour at her hand, but that which stood with her owne offer,namely, to be his Wife in honourable marriage, The Maide knowingsufficiently, that he could not be more desirous of the match, thenher Mistresse shewed her selfe to be, made answer in her name, thatthis motion would be most welcome to her.详情
