尊亿 Alas courteous Gentleman, in an unblessed houre came my Ladyesbrother hither yesternight, inflicting too much trouble upon us, and agrievous time of affliction to you. But I am not ignorant, that youbeing vertuous, and a judicious Scholler, have an invincible spirit ofpacience, and sufficient understanding withall; that what this nightcould not affoord, another may make a sound amends for. This I can anddare sufficiently assure you, that nothing could be more displeasingto my Lady, neither can she well be quieted in her mind: untill shehave made a double and treble requitall, for such a strange unexpectedinconvenience, whereof she had not the very least suspition.
官网尊亿官网客户端客户Mithridanes, excusing no further his malevolent deliberation, butrather commending the honest defence, which Nathan made on hisbehalfe; proceeded so farre in after discoursing, as to tel himplainely, that it did wondrously amaze him, how he durst come to thefatall appointed place, himselfe having so exactly plotted andcontrived his owne death: whereunto Nathan returned this aunswere.
尊亿官网I would not have thee Mithridanes, to wonder at my counsel ordetermination; because, since age hath made mee Maister of mine ownewill, and I resolved to doe that, wherein thou hast begun to followme: never came any man to mee, whom I did not content (if I could)in any thing he demanded of me. It was thy fortune to come for mylife, which when I saw thee so desirous to have it, I resolvedimmediately to bestow it on thee: and so much the rather, because thoushouldst not be the onely man, that ever departed hence, withoutenjoying whatsoever hee demanded. And, to the end thou mightst themore assuredly have it, I gave thee that advice, least by not enjoyingmine, thou shouldest chance to loose thine owne. I have had the use ofit full fourescore yeares, with the consummation of all my delightsand pleasures: and well I know, that according to the course of Nature(as it fares with other men, and generally all things else) itcannot bee long before it must leave mee.尊亿官网客户端客户尊亿Wherefore, I hold it much better for me to give it away freely, as Ihave alwayes done my goods and treasure; then bee curious in keepingit, and suffer it to be taken from me (whether I will or no) byNature. A small gift it is, if time make me up the full summe of anhundred yeares: how miserable is it then, to stand beholding but forfoure or five, and all of them vexation too? Take it then I intreatethee, if thou wilt have it; for I never met with any man before (butthy selfe) that di desire it, nor (perhaps) shall finde any other torequest it: for the longer I keepe it, the worse it wil be esteemed:and before it grow contemptible, take it I pray thee.官网
客户Mithridanes, being exceedingly confounded with shame, bashfullysayde: Fortune fore-fend, that I should take away a thing soprecious as your life is, or once to have so vile a thought of it aslately I had; but rather then I would diminish one day thereof, Icould wish, that my time might more amply enlarge it. Forthwithaunswered Nathan, saying. Wouldst thou (if thou couldst) shorten thineowne dayes, onely to lengthen mine? Why then thou wouldest have meto do that to thee, which (as yet) I never did unto any man, namely,robbe thee, to enrich my selfe. I will enstruct thee in a muchbetter course, if thou wilt be advised by mee. Lusty and young, as nowthou art, thou shalt dwell heere in my house, and be called by thename of Nathan. Aged, and spent with yeares, as thou seest I am, Iwill goe live in thy house, and bee called by the name of Mithridanes.So, both the name and place shall illustrate thy Glorie, and I livecontentedly, without the very least thought of envie.尊亿官网When the Rats tailes were fully finished, Bruno declaring by outwardbehaviour, that he greatly distasted the matter mooved, thus answered.Worthy Master Doctor, the courtesies you have already extended towardsme, and the bountifull favours promised beside, I know to be exceedinggreat, and farre beyond the compasse of any merit in me. Butconcerning your request, albeit in respect of your admired braineand Wisedome, it is of little or no moment at all; yet it appearethover-mighty to mee, and there is not any man now living in theworld, that hath the like Authoritie over me, and can more commaundme, then you (with one poore syllable) easily may doe: as well inregarde of my Love and Dutie, as also your singular and sententiousspeeches, able not onelie to make me breake a sound and setledresolution, but (almost) to move Mountaines out of their places, andthe more I am in your Learned company, so much the faster am I linckedunto you, in immooveable affection, so farre am I in love with youradmirable qualities. And had I no other reason, to affect you insuch endeared manner, as I doe; yet because you are enamoured of sorare a beauty, as you have already related to me, it onely were amotive sufficient to compell me. But indeed I must need tell you, thatI have not so much power in this case, as you (perhaps) do imagine,which barreth me from such forward readines, as otherwise needed notto be urged. Neverthelesse, having so solemnly ingaged your faith tome, and no way misdoubting your faithfull secrecy, I shall instructyou in some meanes to be observed; and it appeareth plainly to me,that being furnished with such plenty of Bookes, as you are, and otherrich endowments, as you have before rehersed, you cannot but attaineto the full period of your longing desire.详情
