The men of Rhodes being landed, ranpresently to the neere-neighbouring Villages, where dwelt diversworthy Gentlemen, to whom they reported the arrivall of Chynon, whatfortune befell them at Sea, and that Iphigenia might now berecovered againe with chastisement to Chynon for his bold insolence.They being very joyfull of these good newes, took so many men asthey could of the same Village, and ran immediately to the Sea side,where Chynon being newly Landed and his people, intending flightinto a neere adjoyning Forrest, for defence of himselfe and Iphigenia,they were all taken, led thence to the Village, and afterwards tothe chiefe City of Rhodes.新濠线上信誉新濠线上信誉
新濠线上信誉No sooner were they arrived, but Pasimondo, the intended Husband forIphigenia (who had already heard the tydings) went and complained tothe Senate, who appointed a Gentleman of Rhodes named Lysimachus,and being that yeere soveraigne Magistrate over the Rhodians, to gowell provided for the apprehension of Chynon and his company,committing them to prison, which accordingly was done. In this manner,the poore unfortunate lover Chynon, lost his faire Iphigenia, havingwon her in so short a while before, and scarsely requited with so muchas a kisse. But as for Iphigenia, she was royally welcommed by manyLords and Ladies of Rhodes, who so kindely comforted her, that shesoone forgotte all her greefe and trouble on the Sea, remaining incompany of those Ladies and Gentlewomen, untill the day determined forher marriage.新濠线上信誉新濠线上信誉新濠线上信誉At the earnest entreaty of divers Rhodian Gentlemen, who were in theShip with Iphigenia, and had their lives courteously saved byChynon: both he and his friends had their lives likewise spared,although Pasimondo laboured importunately, to have them all put todeath; onely they were condemned to perpetuall imprisonment, which(you must thinke) was most greevous to them, as being now hopelesse ofany deliverance. But in the meane time, while Pasimondo was orderinghis nuptiall preparation, Fortune seeming to repent the wrongs she haddone to Chynon, prepared a new accident, whereby to comfort him inthis deepe distresse, and in such manner as I will relate unto you.新濠线上信誉新濠线上信誉Pasimondo had a Brother, yonger then he in yeeres, but not a jotinferiour to him in vertue, whose name was Hormisda, and long time thecase had bene in question, for his taking to wife a faire youngGentlewoman of Rhodes, called Cassandra; whom Lysimachus the Governourloved very dearly, and hindred her marriage with Hormisda, by diversstrange accidents. Now Pasimondo perceiving, that his owne Nuptialsrequired much cost and solemnity, hee thought it very convenient, thatone day might serve for both their Weddings, which else would lanchinto more lavish expences, and therefore concluded, that his brotherHormisda should marry Cassandra, at the same time as he weddedIphigenia. Hereupon, he consulted with the Gentlewomans parents, wholiking the motion as well as he, the determination was set downe,and one day to effect the duties of both.
新濠线上信誉新濠线上信誉When this came to the hearing of Lysimachus, it was very greatlydispleasing to him, because now he saw himselfe utterly deprived of alhope to attaine the issue of his desire, if Hormisda receivedCassandra in marriage. Yet being a very wise and worthy man, hedissembled his distaste, and began to consider on some apt meanes,whereby to disappoint the marriage once more, which he foundimpossible to be done, except it were by way of rape or stealth. Andthat did not appeare to him any difficult matter, in regard of hisOffice and Authority: onely it would seeme dishonest in him, by givingsuch an unfitting example. Neverthelesse, after long deliberation,honour gave way to love, and resolutely he concluded to steale heraway, whatsoever became of it.新濠线上信誉THE INDUCTION TO THE FIFT DAY详情
