城平梦之城平台app城平Within a short while after, calling Gianetta privately to her, ingentle manner, and by the way of pleasant discourse, she demanded ofhir, whither she was provided of a Lover, or no. Gianetta, being neveracquainted with any such questions, a scarlet Dye covering all hermodest countenance, thus replyed. Madam, I have no neede of any Lover,and very unseemely were it, for so poore a Damosell as I am, to haveso much as a thought of Lovers, being banished from my friends andkinsfolke, and remaining in service as I do.
城平城平If you have none (answered the Ladie) wee will bestow one on you,which shall content your minde, and bring you to a more pleasing kindeof life; because it is farre unfit, that so faire a Maid as youare., should remaine destitute of a Lover. Madam, said Gianetta,considering with my selfe, that since you received me of my pooreFather, you have used me rather like your daughter, then a servant; itbecommeth mee to doe as pleaseth you. Notwithstanding, I trust (in theregard of mine owne good and honour) never to use any complaint insuch a case: but if you please to bestow a husband on me, I purpose tolove and honor him onely, and not any other. For, of all theinheritance left me by my progenitors, nothing remaineth to me buthonourable honesty, and that shall be my Legacie so long as I live.梦之城平台app城平城平These wordes, were of a quite contrary complexion, to those whichthe Lady expected from her, and for effecting the promise made untohir Sonne: howbeit (like a wise and noble Ladie) much she inwardlycommended the maids answers, and said unto her.

Which the Lady perceiving, revealedher whole intent to Gianetta, and finding her constancie beyond commoncomparison, acquainted her Lord with all she had done, and bothconsented (though much against their mindes) to let him enjoy her inhonourable marriage: accounting it better, for preservation of theironely sons life, to match him farre inferiour to his degree, then bydenying h desire, to let him pine and dye for her love.城平城平详情
