Wonderfull crowds of people were then in the Church; and thisaccident being now noysed among the men, at length it came to herHusbands understanding, whose greefe was so great, as it exceededall capacity of expression. Afterward he declared what had hapned inhis house the precedent night, according as his wife had truly relatedto him, with all the speeches, which passed between Silvestra andJeronimo; by which discourse, they generally conceived, the certaineoccasion of both their sodaine deaths, which moved them to greatcompassion. Then taking the yong womans body, and ordering it as acoarse ought to be: they layed it on the same Biere by the yong man,and when they had sufficiently sorrowed for their disastrousfortune, they gave them honourable buriall both in. one grave. So,this poore couple, whom love (in life) could not joyne together, deathdid unite in an inseparable conjunction.

You must understand then (most gracious Ladies) that after the deathof Fredericke the second Emperour, one named Manfred, was crowned Kingof Sicily, about whom, lived in great account and authority, aNeapolitane Gentleman, called Henriet Capece, who had to Wife abeautifull Gentlewoman, and a Neapolitane also, named Madam BeritolaCaracalla. This Henriet held the government of the Kingdome of Sicily,and understanding that King Charles the first, had wonne the battle atBeneventum, and slaine King Manfred, the whole Kingdome revolting alsoto his devotion, and little trust to be reposed in the Sicillians,or he willing to subject himselfe to his Lordes enemie; provided forhis secret flight from thence. But this being discovered to theSicillians, he and many more, who had beene loyall servants to KingManfred, were suddenly taken and imprisoned by King Charles, and thesole possession of the Iland confirmed to him.

POLICIES AND DECEITES, AS WOMEN HAVE USED FOR BEGUILING OF THEIR

The fortunes of Rinaldo de Este, being heard by the Ladies andGentlemen, they admired his happinesse, and commended his devotionto Saint Julian, who (in such extreame necessity) sent him so goodsuccour. Nor was the Lady to be blamed, for leaving base liberty,and converting to the chaste embraces of the marriage bed, the dignityof Womens honour, and eternall disgrace living otherwise. While thusthey descanted on the happy night betweene her and Rinaldo, MadamPampinea sitting next to Philostratus, considering, that her Discoursemust follow in order, and thinking on what shee was to say; the Queenehad no sooner sent out her command, but she being no lesse fairethen forward, began in this manner. Ladies of great respect, themore we conferre on the accidents of Fortune, so much the moreremaineth to consider on her mutabilities, wherein there is no need ofwonder, if discreetly we observe that al such things as we fondlytearme to be our owne, are in her power, and so (consequently)change from one to another, without any stay or arrest (according toher concealed judgement) or setled order (at least) that can beeknowne to us. Now, although these things appeare thus dayly to us,even apparantly in all occasions, and as hath beene discerned bysome of our precedent Discourses; yet notwithstanding, seeing itpleaseth the Queene, that our arguments should aime at these ends, Iwill adde to the former tales another of my owne, perhaps notunprofitable for the hearers, nor unpleasing in observation.

As I before did never prove,

The poore woman perceyving by her habite that she was a Christian,demanded of her (in speaking Latine) how it was possible for her,being all alone in the boate, to arrive there in this manner? WhenConstance, heard her speake the Latine tongue, she began to doubt,least some contrary winde had turned her backe to Liparis againe,and starting up sodainly, to looke with better advice about her,shee saw her selfe at Land: and not knowing the Countrey, demandedof the poore woman where she was? Daughter (quoth she) you are heerehard by Susa in Barbarie. Which Constance hearing, and plainlyperceyving, that death had denied to end her miseries, fearing leastshe should receive some dishonour, in such a barbarous unkindeCountry, and not knowing what should now become of her, shee satedowne by the boates side, wringing her hands, and weeping bitterly.

By this time, the Sergeants and other Officers of the City,ordinarily attending on the Magistrate, being raised by the tumultof this uproare, were come into the house, and had poore Ruggierocommitted unto their charge: who bringing him before the Governor, wasforthwith called in question, and known to be of a most wicked life, ashame to all his friends and kindred. He could say little forhimselfe, never denying his taking in the house, and thereforedesiring to finish all his fortunes together, desperately confessed,that he came with a fellonious intent to rob them, and the Governorgave him sentence to be hanged.

Ceremonious shew was made, of sending a servant to the Inne, for notexpecting Andreas presence at Supper, though no such matter wasperformed; but, after divers other discoursings, the table beingcovered, and variety of costly viands placed thereon, downe theysate to feeding, with plenty of curious Wines liberally walking about,so that it was darke night before they arose from the table. Andreathen offring to take his leave, she would (by no meanes) suffer it,but tolde him, that Naples was a Citie of such strict Lawes andOrdinances, as admitted no night-walkers, although they wereNatives, much lesse strangers, but punnished them with great severity.And therefore, as she had formerly sent word to his Inne, that theyshould not expect his comming to supper, the like had she doneconcerning his bed, intending to give her Brother Andrea one nightslodging, which as easily she could affoord him, as shee had done aSupper. All which this new-caught Woodcocke verily crediting, and thathe was in company of his owne Sister Fiordeliza (for so did shecunningly stile her selfe, and in which beleefe he was meerelydeluded) he accepted the more gladly her gentle offer, and concludedto stay there all that night.

Ruggiero, not knowing their voyces, made them no answer;wherefore they called to their husbands, who lay very soundly sleepingby them, by reason of their so late walking abroad, and thereforeheard not this noise in the house. This made the Women much moretimorous, and therefore rising out of their beddes, they opened theCasement towards the streete, crying out aloude, Theeves, Theeves. Theneighbours arose upon this outcry, running up and downe from placeto place, some engirting the house, and others entering into it: bymeans of which troublesome noise, the two Lombards awaked, and seizingthere upon poore Ruggiero (who was well-neere affrighted out of hiswittes, at so strange an accident, and his owne ignorance, how hehappened thither, and how to escape from them) he stood gazing on themwithout any answer. ϸ

360˹˶ϱһ˼Ǵ After he had thus discoursed with himselfe, remembring Sophronia,and converting his former allegations, into a quite contrarie sense,in utter detestation of them, and guided by his idle appetite, thus hebegan againe. The lawes of love are of greater force, then any otherwhatsoever, they not only breake the bands of friendship, but eventhose also of more divine consequence. How many times hath it binnoted, the father to affect his own daughter, the brother hissister, and the stepmother her son in law, matters far more monstrous,then to see one friend love the wife of another, a case happeningcontinually? Moreover, I am yong, and youth is wholly subjected to thepassions of Love: is it reasonable then, that those should be bardfrom me, which are fitting and pleasing to Love? Honest things, belongto men of more years and maturity, then I am troubled withall, and Ican covet none, but onely those wherein Love is directer. The beautyof Sophronia is worthy of generall love, and if I that am a yongman dolove her, what man living can justly reprove me for it? Shold not Ilove her, because she is affianced to Gisippus? That is no matter tome, I ought to love her, because she is a woman, and women werecreated for no other occasion, but to bee Loved. Fortune had sinned inthis case, and not I, in directing my frends affection to her,rather then any other; and if she ought to be loved, as herperfections do challenge, Gisippus understanding that I affect her,may be the better contented that it is I, rather then any other. ϸ
