任天 Much discontented was the Lady at this unexpected accident, andnot knowing now how to spend the time, resolved to use the Bathwhich shee had made for the Marquesse, and (after supper) betake herselfe to rest, and so she entred into the Bath. Close to the doorewhere poore Rinaldo sate, stoode the Bath, by which meanes, shee beingtherein, heard all his quivering moanes, and complaints, seeming to besuch, as the Swanne singing before her death: whereupon, shee calledher Chamber-maide, saying to her. Goe up above, and looke over theterrace on the wall downe to this doore, and see who is there, andwhat he doth. The Chamber-maide went up aloft, and by a littleglimmering in the ayre, she saw a man sitting in his shirt, bare onfeete and legges, trembling in manner before rehearsed. Shedemanding of whence, and what he was; Rinaldoes teeth so trembled inhis head, as very hardly could he forme any words, but (so well ashe could) told her what he was, and how he came thither: mostpittifully entreating her, that if she could affoord him any helpe,not to suffer him to starve there to death with cold.
堂线任天堂线上娱乐上娱Good Father (answered the Woman) never make you any doubt thereof,for I would rather endure death it selfe, then disclose any thingwhich you enjoyne me to keepe secret: wherefore, I beseech you Sirto tell me, how, and by what meanes it may be done. If (quoth theAbbot) you desire to have him perfectly cured, of disease so dangerousand offensive, of necessity he Must be sent into Purgatory. How maythat be done, saide the woman, he being alive? He must needs die,answered the Abbot, for his more speedy passage thither; and when hehath endured so much punishment, as may expiate the quality of hisjealousie, we have certaine devoute and zealous prayers, whereby tobring him backe againe to life, in as able manner as ever he was.Why then, replyed the woman, I must remaine in the state of aWiddow? Very true, saide the Abbot, for a certaine time, in allwhich space, you may not (by no meanes) marrie againe, because theheavens will therewith be highly offended: but Ferando beingreturned to life againe, you must repossesse him as your Husband,but never to be jealous any more. Alas Sir (quoth the woman) so thathe may be cured of his wicked jealousie, and I no longer live insuch an hellish imprisonment, do as you please.
任天堂线Now was the Abbot (well neere) on the highest step of his hope,making her constant promise, to accomplish it: But (quoth he) whatshall be my recompence when I have done it? Father, saide she,whatsoever you please to aske, if it remaine within the compasse of mypower: but you being such a vertuous and sanctified man, and I a womanof so meane worth or merit; what sufficient recompence can I be ableto make you? Whereunto the Abbot thus replyed. Faire woman, you areable to do as much for me, as I am for you, because I doe dispose myselfe, to performe a matter for your comfort and consolation, evenso ought you to be as mindfull of me, in any action concerning my lifeand welfare. In any such matter Sir (quoth she) depending on yourbenefit so strictly, you may safely presume to command me. You mustthen (saide the Abbot) grant me your love, and the kinde embracingof your person; because so violent are mine affections, as I pineand consume away daily, till I enjoy the fruition of my desires, andnone can helpe me therein but you.When the woman heard these words, as one confounded with muchamazement, thus shee replied. Alas, holy Father! What a strange motionhave you made to me? I beleeved very faithfully, that you were nolesse then a Saint, and is it convenient, that when silly women cometo ask counsell of such sanctified men, they should returne themsuch unfitting answeres? Be not amazed good woman, saide the Abbot, atthe motion which I have made unto you, because holinesse is notthereby impaired a jot in me; for it is the inhabitant of the soule,the other is an imperfection attending on the body: but be itwhatsoever, your beauty hath so powerfully prevailed on me, thatentire love hath compelld me to let you know it. And more may youboast of your beauty, then any that ever I beheld before, considering,it is so pleasing to a sanctified man, that it can draw him fromdivine contemplations, to regard a matter of so humble an equalitie.任天堂线上娱乐上娱任天Let me tell you moreover, woorthy Woman, that see me reverenced hereas Lord Abbot, yet am I but as other men are, and in regard I amneither aged, nor mishapen, me thinkes the motion I have made,should be the lesse offensive to you, and therefore the soonergranted. For, all the while as Ferando remaineth in Purgatory, doe youbut imagine him to be present with you, and your perswasion will themore absolutely be confirmed. No man can, or shall be privy to ourclose meetings, for I carry the same holy opinion among all men, asyou your selfe conceived of me, and none dare be so saucie, as to callin question whatsoever I doe or say, because my words are Oracles, andmine actions more than halfe miracles; doe you not then refuse sogracious an offer. Enow there are, who would gladly enjoy that,which is francke and freely presented to you, and which (if you be awise Woman) is meerely impossible for you to refuse. Richly am Ipossessed of Gold and Jewels, which shall be all yours, if youplease in favour to be mine, wherein I will not be gaine-saide, exceptyour selfe do deny me.堂线
上娱The Woman having her eyes fixed on the ground, knew not well howshee should denie him; and yet in plaine words, to say shee consented,shee held it to be overbase and immodest, and ill agreeing with herformer reputation: when the Abbot had well noted this attention inher, and how silent shee stood without returning any answere; heaccounted the conquest to be more then halfe his owne: so thatcontinuing on his former perswasions, hee never ceased, but alluredher still to beleeve whatsoever he saide. And much ashamed of hisimportunity, but more of her owne flexible yeelding weaknesse, madeanswere, that shee would willingly accomplish his request; which yetshee did not absolutely grant, untill Ferando were first sent intoPurgatory. And till then (quoth the Abbot) I will not urge any more,because I purpose his speedy sending thither: but yet, so farre lendme your assistance, that either to morrow, or else the next day, hemay come hither once more to converse with me. So putting a faire goldRing on her finger, they parted till the next meeting.任天堂线详情
