官网88正式官网正式Surely Sir, said Calandrino, it is further hence, then to Abruzzi?Yes questionlesse, replyed Maso; but, to a willing minde, no travellseemeth tedious.
官网正式Calandrino well noting, that Maso delivered all these speeches, witha stedfast countenance, no signe of smyling, or any gesture to urgethe least mislike: he gave such credit to them, as to any matter ofapparent and manifest truth, and upon this assured confidence, hesaid.88正式官网官网正式Beleeve me Sir, the journey is over-farre for mee to undertake,but if it were neerer; I could affoord to goe in your Company; onelyto see how they make these Macherones, and to fill my belly with them.官网
正式But now wee are in talke Sir, I pray you pardon mee to aske, whetherany such precious stones, as you spake off, are to be found in thatCountrey, or no? Yes indeed, replyed Maso, there are two kinds of themto be found in those Territories, both being of very great vertue. Onekind, are gritty stones, of Settignano, and of Montisca, by vertueof which places, when any Mill-stones or Grind-stones are to bee made,they knede the sand as they use to doe meale, and so make them of whatbignesse they please. In which respect, they have a common sayingthere: that Nature maketh common stones, but Montisca Mill-stones.Such plenty are there of these Mill-stones, so slenderly here esteemedamong us, as Emeralds are with them, whereof they have wholemountaines, farre greater then our Montemorello, which shine mostgloriously at midnight. And how meanly soever we account of theirMill-stones; yet there they drill them, and enchase them in Rings,which afterward they send to the great Soldane, and have whatsoeverthey will demaund for them.官网正式Now, over and beside all these admirable qualities, hee hath maniemore such singularities, which (in favour towards him) I am faine toconceale.

But truly, he is anotable servant to mee, for I cannot speake with any one, and in neverso great secrecy, but he will be sure to heare his part; and whenany question is demanded of me, he standes in such awe and feare of mydispleasure: that he will bee sure to make the first answer, yea orno, according as he thinketh it most convenient.详情
