In this Barkewas a Gentleman, named Conrado de Marchesi Malespini, with his holyand vertuous wife, who were returned backe from a Pilgrimage, havingvisited all the sanctified places that then were in the kingdome ofApulia, and now were bound homeward to their owne abiding.

Her Brethren in scornefull manner reprooved her, telling her, thathe was a begger, and had nothing left to keepe him in the world. Iknow it well (quoth she) and am heartily sorry for it.

The Brethren hearing how she stood addicted, and knowingFrederigo to be a worthy Gentleman, though poverty had disgraced himin the World: consented thereto, so she bestowed her selfe and herriches on him.

Sir, a man oughtto bestow his best paines and diligence, that the truth of thingsshould be apparantly knowne, especially, such men as hold the placeand office as you doe: to the end, that those persons which havecommitted no foule offence, should not bee punished, but onely theguilty and haynous transgressors.
