威尼 Sodainly, Marquiso bethought him how to do it, and proceeded thus.All the Sergeants for Justice standing at the Church doore, hee ranwith all possible speede to the Potestates Lieutenant, and said untohim. Good my Lord Justice, helpe me in an hard case; yonder is avillaine that hath cut my purse, I desire he may bee brought beforeyou, that I may have my money againe. He hearing this, sent for adozen of the Sergeants, who went to apprehend unhappy Martellino,and recover him from the peoples fury, leading him on with them to thePalace, no meane crowds thronging after him, when they heard that hewas accused to bee a Cutpurse.

斯人威尼斯人下载下载Not farre from Alexandria, there was a great and goodlyMonasterie, belonging to the Lord of those parts, who is termed theAdmirall. And therein, under the care and trust of one woman, diversvirgins were kept as recluses, or Nuns, vowed to chastity of life; outof whose number, the Soldan of Babylon (under whom they lived insubjection) at every three yeers end, had usually three of thesevirgins sent him. At the time wherof I am now to speake, thereremained in the Monastery, no more but eight religious Sisters only,beside the Lady Abbesse, and an honest poor man, who was a Gardiner,and kept the Garden in commendable order.
威尼斯人His wages being small, and he not well contented therewith, wouldserve there no longer: but making his accounts even, with the Factotumor Bayliffe belonging to the house, returned thence to the villageof Lamporechio, being a native of the place. Among many other thatgave him welcom home, was a yong Hebrew pezant of the country, sturdy,strong and yet comely of person, being named Masset. But because hewas born not farre off from Lamporechio, and had there bin broughtup all his yonger dayes, his name of Masset (according to their vulgarspeech) was turnec to Massetto, and therefore he was usually calledand knowne by the name of Massetto of Lamporechio.威尼斯人下载下载威尼Massetto, falling in talke with the honest poore man, whose name wasLurco, demanded of him what services hee had done in the Monasterie,having continued there so long a time? Quoth Lurco, I laboured inthe Garden, which is very faire and great; then I went to the Forestto fetch home wood, and cleft it for their Chamber fuell, drawing upall theyr water beside, with many other toilsome services else: butthe allowance of my wages was so little, as it would not pay for theshoes I wore. And that which was worst of all, they being all women, Ithinke the divel dwels among g them, for a man cannot doe any thing toplease them. When I have bene busie at my worke in the garden, onewould come and say, Put this heere, put that there; and others wouldtake the dibble out of my hand, telling me, that I did not performeany thing well, making me so weary of their continuall trifling, asI have lefte all busines, given over the Garden, and what for onemollestation, as also many other; I intended to tarry no longer there,but came away, as thou seest. And yet the Factotum desired me at mydeparting, that if I knew any one who would undertake the aforesaidlabours, I should send him thither, as (indeed) I promised to do:but let mee fall sicke and dye, before I helpe to send them any.斯人
下载When Massetto had heard the words of Lurco, hee was so desirous todwell among the Nunnes, that nothing else now hammered in his head:for he meant more subtilly than poore Lurco did, and made no doubtto please them sufficiently. Then considering with himselfe, howbest he might bring his intent to effect; which appeared not easily tobee done. He could question no further therein with Lurco, but onelydemaunded other matter of him, saying: Introth thou didst wellLurco, to come away from so tedious a dwelling, had he need to be morethen a man that is to live with such women? It were better for himto dwell among so many divels, because they understand not the tenthpart that womens wily wits can dive into.威尼斯人Pamphilus having ended his Tale, the King declaring an outwardshew of compassion, in regard of Andreanaes disastrous Fortune;fixed his eye on Madam Aemilia, and gave her such an apparant signe,as expressed his pleasure, for her next succeeding in discourse; whichbeing sufficient for her understanding, thus she began. Faireassembly, the Novell so lately delivered by Pamphilus, maketh mewilling to report another to you, varying from it, in any kinde ofresemblance; onely this excepted: that as Andreana lost her lover in aGarden, even so did she of whom I am now to speake. And beingbrought before the seate of Justice, according as Andreana was,freed her selfe from the power of the Law; yet neither by force, orher owne vertue, but by her sodaine and inopinate death. Andalthough the nature of Love is such (according as we have oftentimesheeretofore maintained) to make his abiding in the houses of theNoblest persons; yet men and women of poore and farre inferiourquality, do not alwayes sit out of his reach, though enclosed in theirmeanest Cottages; declaring himselfe sometime as a powerfullcommaunder in those humble places, as he doth in the richest andmost imperious Palaces. As will plainly appeare unto you, either inall, or a great part of my Novell, whereto our Citie pleadeth sometitle; though, by the diversity of our discourses, talking of somany severall accidents; we have wandred into many other parts ofthe world, to make all answerable to our owne liking.详情
