牌游 The joviall dayes of feasting being past, he went aboord a Galleywith the Poore expelled, his Daughter, the Ambassador, and theNurse, departing thence to Lericy, where they were nobly welcommedby Messer Conrado, and his Castle being not farre from thence, with anhonourable traine they were conducted thither, and entertained withall possible kindnesse. Now concerning the comfort of the Mother,meeting so happily with both her sonnes, the joy of the brethren andmother together, having also found the faithful Nurse, Gasparino andhis daughter, in company now with Conrado and his wife, friends,familiars, and all generally in a jubilee of rejoycing: it exceedethcapacity in mee to expresse it, and therefore I referre it to yourmore able imagination.
戏官心The friendly Merchant, and likewise the Ladie, hearing thesewords, wept both bitterly: and after hee had given over speaking,kindely they comforted him, with promises and solemne Vowes, that ifhee dyed, all should be performed which hee had requested. Within ashort while after, he departed out of this life, and they gave himverie honourable buriall, according to that Country custome. Whichbeing done, the Merchant dispatching all his affaires at Rhodes, wasdesirous to returne home to Cyprus, in a Carracke of the Catelans thenthere being: mooving the Ladie in the matter, to understand how sheestoode enclined, because urgent occasions called him thence to Cyprus.The Lady made answere, that shee was willing to passe thither withhim, hoping for the love hee bare to deceased Antiochus, that heewould respect her as his Sister. The Merchant was willing to giveher any contentment, but yet resolved her, that under the title ofbeing his Sister, it would be no warrant of securitie to them both.Wherefore, hee rather advised her, to stile him as her husband, and hewould terme her his Wife, and so hee should be sure to defend her fromall injuries whatsoever.747棋牌游戏官网中心网中
牌游Being aboord the Carrack, they had a Cabine and small bedconveniently allowed them, where they slept together, that theymight the better be reputed as man and wife; for, to passeotherwise, would have beene very dangerous to them both. Andquestionlesse, their faithfull promise made at Rhodes to Antiochus,sickenesse on the Sea, and mutuall respect they had of each otherscredit, was a constant restraint to all wanton desires, and a motiverather to incite Chastitie, then otherwise, and so (I hope) you areperswaded of them. But howsoever, the windes blewe merrily, theCarracke sayled lustily, and (by this time) they are arrived at Baffa,where the Cyprian Merchant dwelt, and where shee continued a longwhile with him, no one knowing otherwise, but that shee was his wifeindeede.Now it fortuned, that there arrived also at the same Baffa (aboutsome especiall occasions of his) a Gentleman whose name was Antigonus,well stept into yeeres, and better stored with wisedome then wealth:because by medling in many matters, while hee followed the serviceof the King of Cyprus, Fortune had beene very adverse to him. Thisancient Gentleman, passing (on a day) by the house where the Lady lay,and the Merchant being gone about his bussinesse into Armenia: heechanced to see the Lady at a window of the house, and because shee wasvery beautifull, he observed her the more advisedly, recollectinghis sences together, that (doubtlesse) he had seene her before, but inwhat place hee could not remember. The Lady her selfe likewise, whohad so long time beene Fortunes tennis ball, and the terme of her manymiseries drawing now neere an ending: began to conceive (upon the veryfirst sight of Antigonus) that she had formerly seene him inAlexandria, serving her Father in place of great degree. Heereupon,a sodaine hope perswaded her, that by the advice and furtherance ofthis Gentleman, shee should recover her wonted Royall condition: andopportunity now aptly fitting her, by the absence of her pretendedMerchant-husband, shee sent for him, requesting to have a few wordswith him.戏官心747棋牌游戏官网中心网中When he was come into the house, she bashfully demanded of him, ifhe was not named Antigonus of Famagosta, because she knew one like himso called? He answered that he was so named: saying moreover, Madam methinkes I should know you, but I cannot remember where I have seeneyou, wherefore I would entreat (if it might stand with your goodliking) that my memory might be quickned with better knowledge of you.The Lady perceiving him to be the man indeed, weeping incessantly, shethrew her armes about his necke, and soone after asked Antigonus(who stood as one confounded with mervaile) if he had never seeneher in Alexandria? Upon these words, Antigonus knew her immediately tobe Alathiella, daughter to the great Soldane, who was supposed (longsince) to be drowned in the Sea: and offering to do her such reverenceas became him, she would not permit him, but desired that he would beeassistant to her, and willed him also to sit downe awhile by her.牌游戏官心A goodly chaire being brought him, in very humble maner hedemanded of her, what had become of her in so long a time, becauseit was verily beleeved throughout all Egypt, that she was drowned inthe Sea. I would it had bin so, answered the Lady, rather then toleade such a life as I have done; and I thinke my Father himselfewould wish it so, if ever he should come to the knowledge thereof.With these words the teares rained downe her faire cheekes:wherefore Antigonus thus spake unto hir. Madam, discomfort not yourselfe before you have occasion; but (if you be so pleased) relate yourpassed accidents to me, and what the course of your life hath bene:perhaps, I shall give you such friendly advice as may stand youinsted, and no way be injurious to you.
