THEMSELVES WITH YOUNGER WOMEN THEN IS FIT FOR THEIR YEERES,

Ϸ廭

When the long discourse of Madame Emilia was ended, notdispleasing to any, in regard of the length, but rather held tooshort, because no exceptions could bee taken against it, comparing theraritie of the accidents, and changes together: the Queene turned toMadame Lauretto, giving her such a manifest signe, as she knew, thatit was her turne to follow next, and therefore shee tooke occasionto begin thus. Faire Ladies, I intend to tell you a Tale of trueth,which (perhaps) in your opinions, will seeme to sound like a lye:and yet I heard by the very last relation, that a dead man was weptand mournd for, in sted of another being then alive. In which respect,I am now to let you know, how a living man was buried for dead, andbeing raised againe, yet not as living, himselfe, and divers morebeside, did beleeve that he came forth of his grave, and adored him asa Saint, who was the occasion thereof, and who (as a bad man.)deserved justly to be condemned.

Honest man, I have often heard it reported by many, that thou artvery skilfull, and in cases concerning God, thou goest beyond allother of these times: wherefore, I would gladly bee informed bythee, which of those three Lawes or Religions, thou takest to betruest; that of the Jew, the other of the Sarazen, or that of theChristian? The Jew, being a very wise man, plainely perceived, thatSaladine sought to entrap him in his answere, and so to raise somequarrell against him. For, if he commended any one of those Lawesabove the other, he knew that Saladine had what he aymed at.Wherefore, bethinking himselfe to shape such an answere, as might noway trouble or entangle him: summoning all his sences together, andconsidering, that dallying with the Soldane might redound to his nomeane danger, thus he replied.

Moreover, he knew how to speake, and do such things, as werebeyond wonder or admiration. And, never remembring his olde tatterdFriars Cowle, which was so snottie and greazie, that good store ofkitchin stuffe might have beene boiled out of it; as also a fouleslovenly Trusse or halfe doublet, all baudied with bowsing, fatgreazie lubberly sweating, and other drudgeries in the ConventKitchin, where he was an Officer in the meanest credite. So that todescribe this sweet youth in his lively colours, both for naturallperfections of body, and artificiall composure of his Garments;never came the fowlest silks out of Tartaria or India, more ugly orunsightly to bee lookt upon. And for a further addition to his neateknavery, his breeches were so rent betweene his legges, his shooes andstockings had bin at such a mercilesse massacre: that the gallantestCommandador of Castile (though he had never so lately bin releastout of slavery) could have wisht for better garments, then he; or makelarger promises, then he did to his Nuta. Protesting to entitle her ashis onely, to free her from the Inne and Chamber thraldomes, if shewould live with him, be his Love, partaker of his present possessions,and so to succeed in his future Fortunes. All which bravadoes,though they were belcht foorth with admirable insinuations: yet theyconverted into smoke, as all such braggadochio behaviours do, and hewas as wise at the ending, as when he began.

Poore Lady, how strangely was her soule afflicted, hearing theseharsh and unpleasing speeches? Teares flowed aboundantly from herfaire eies, and like tempestuous windes embowelled in the earth, sodid vehement sighes breake mainly from her heart, and after atedious time of silence, she spake in this manner. My Lord andhusband, you have done a most disloyall and damnable deede,misguided by your owne wicked jealous opinion, and not by any justcause given you, to murther so worthy and Noble a Gentleman. I protestunto you upon my soule, which I wish to be confounded in eternallperdition, if ever I were unchaste to your bed, or allowed him anyother favour, but what might well become so honourable a friend. Andseeing my body hath bene made the receptacle for so precious a kindeof foode, as the heart of so valiant and courteous a Knight, such aswas the Noble Guardastagno; never shall any other foode hereafter,have entertainment there, or my selfe live the Wife to so bloody aHusband.

Our King (most Noble and vertuous Ladies) hath this day given us asubject, very rough and stearne to discourse on, and so much therather, if we consider, that we are come hither to be merry andpleasant, where sad Tragicall reports are no way suteable, especially,by reviving the teares of others, to bedew our owne cheekes withall.Nor can any such argument be spoken of, without moving compassion bothin the reporters, and hearers. But (perhaps) it was his Highnessepleasure, to moderate the delights which we have already had. Orwhatsoever else hath provoked him thereto, seeing it is not lawfullfor me, to alter or contradict his appointment; I will recount anaccident very pittifull, or rather most unfortinate, and well worthyto be graced with bur teares.

There is the great Lady of Barbanicchia; the Queene of Baschia;the Wife to the great Soldane, the Empresse of Osbeccho; theCiancianfera of Norniera; the Semistante of Berlinzona; and theScalpedra of Narsia. But why do I breake my braine, in numbering up somany to you? All the Queenes of the world are there, even so farreas to the Schinchimurra of Prester John, that hath a horne in themidst of her posteriores, albeit not visible to every eye.

Could me prepare;

Andrea hereat was not a little amazed, so that if he had not takenvery good hold on the brim: he might have falne to the bottome, anddoubtlesse there his life had perished. Being come forth of theWell, and treading on Billes and Halbards, which he well knew that hiscompanions had not brought thither with them; his mervaile so much themore encreased, ignorance and feare still seizing him, with silentbemoaning his many misfortunes, away thence he wandred, but hee wistnot whither. As he went on, he met his two fellowes, who purposelyreturned to drag him out of the Well, and seeing their intentalready performed, desired to know who had done it: wherein Andreacould not resolve them, rehearsing what hee could, and what weaponshee found lying about the Well. Whereat they smiled, as knowing,that the Watch had haled him up, for feare of whom they left him,and so declared to him the reason of their returne.

It fortuned that two men, who had beene abroad the same night,committing thefts and robberies together; somwhat very earlie in themorning, came to the same Cave, intending there to share and dividetheir booties, and difference happening betweene them about it, heethat was the stronger person, slew there the other, and then went awaywith the whole purchase.

Forwhich, they all present, did greatly reprehend Blondello,considering he knew what kinde of man Philippo was, not any way tobe jested with Blondello in teares constantly maintained, that henever sent any such message for wine, or intended it in the leastdegree: so, when the tempest was more mildly calmed, and Blondello(thus cruelly beaten and durtied) had gotten home to his owne house,he could then remember, that (questionles) this was occasioned byGuiotto. ϸ
