At one especiall time among other, chancing into aShop or Booth belonging to the Venetians, she espied (hanging upwith other costly wares) a Purse and a Girdle, which sodainly sheremembred to be sometime her owne; whereat she was not a littleabashed in her minde. But without making any such outward shew,courteously she requested to know whose they were, and whether theyshould be sold, or no.
下载号官Ambroginolo of Placentia, was likewise come thither, and great storeof Merchandizes hee had brought with him, in a Carracke appertainingto the Venetians, and hee hearing the Captaine of the Guard demaundwhose they were, stepped foorth before him, and smiling, answered:That they were his, but not to be solde; yet if hee liked them, gladlyhe would bestow them on him. Sicurano seeing him smile, suspectedleast himselfe had (by some unfitting behaviour) beene the occasionthereof: and therefore, with a more setled countenance, hee said:Perhaps thou smilest, because I that am a man, professing Armes,should question after such womanish toyes. Ambroginolo replyed, MyLord, pardon mee, I smile not at you, or at your demaund, but at themanner how I came by these things.百家号官网app下载下载号官Sicurano, upon this answere, was ten times more desirous thenbefore, and saide: If Fortune favoured thee in friendly maner, bythe obtaining of these things: if it may be spoken, tell mee howthou hadst them. My Lord (answered Ambroginolo) these things (withmany more besides) were given me by a Gentlewoman of Geneway, namedMadam Genevra, the wife to one Bernardo Lomellino, in recompence ofone nights lodging with her, and she desired me to keepe them forher sake. Now, the maine reason of my smiling, was the remembranceof her husbands folly, in waging five thousand Duckets of Gold,against one thousand of mine, that I should not obtaine my will of hisWife; which I did, and thereby won the wager. But hee, who betterdeserved to be punished for his folly, then shee, who was but sicke ofall womens disease; returning from Paris to Geneway, caused her tobe slaine, as afterward it was reported by himselfe.下载
号官When Sicurano heard this horrible lye, immediately shee conceived,that this was the occasion of her husbands hatred to her, and allthe hard haps which she had since suffered: whereupon, shee reputed itfor more then a mortall sinne, if such a villaine should passe withoutdue punishment. Sicurano seemed to like well this report, and grewinto such familiarity with Ambroginolo, that (by her perswasions) whenthe Fayre was ended, she tooke him higher with her into Alexandria,and all his Wares along with him, furnishing him with a fit andconvenient shop, where he made great benefite of his Merchandizes,trusting all his monies in the Captaines custody, because it was thesafest course for him, and so hee continued there with no meanecontentment.下载号官This advice prevailed with them; and so, without taking leave of anybody, or other solemnity then closest secrecie, they departed fromFlorence, not tarrying in any place untill they were arrived inEngland. Comming to the City of London, and taking there a small houseupon yearely rent, living on so little charge as possibly might be,they began to lend out money at use: wherein Fortune was so favourableto them, that (in few yeares) they had gathered a great summe of mony:by means whereof it came to passe, that one while one of them, andafterward another, returned backe againe to Florence: where, withthose summes, a great part of their inheritances were redeemed, andmany other bought beside. Linking themselves in marriage, and yetcontinuing their usances in England; they sent a Nephew of theirsthither, named Alessandro, a yong man, and of faire demeanor, tomaintaine their stocke in employment: while they three remained stilin Florence, and growing forgetful of their former misery, fell againeinto as unreasonable expences as ever, never respecting their housholdcharges, because they had good credite among the Merchants, and themonies still sent from Alessandro, supporting their expences diversyeeres.详情
