They bathed themselves there likewise, as the Ladies formerlie haddone, and being re-vested, returned backe to their Lodgings, becausedarke night drew on apace: but they found the Ladies dauncing, to aSong which Madame Fiammetta sung. When the dance was ended, theyentertained the time with no other discourse, but onely concerning theValley of Ladies, whereof they all spake liberally in commendations.Whereupon, the King called the Master of the Houshold, giving himcommand, that (on the morrow) dinner should be readie betimes, andbedding to be thence carried, if any desired rest at mid-time of theday.

Scarcely were these words concluded, but she felt the custome ofwomen to come upon her, with the paines and throwes incident tochilding: wherefore, with helpe of the aged Lady, Mother to SigniorGentile, it was not long before her deliverance of a goodly Sonne,which greatly augmented the joy of her and Gentile, who tooke order,that all things belonging to a woman in such a case, were not wanting,but she was as carefully respected, even as if she had been his owneWife. Secretly he repaired to Modena, where having given direction forhis place of authority; he returned back againe to Bologna, andthere made preparation for a great and solemne feast, appointing whoshould be his invited guests, the very chiefest persons in Bologna,and (among them) Signior Nicoluccio Caccianimico the especiall man.

The little maid asked him how this might be done. "Thou shalt soonlearn," replied Rustico, "only do as thou seest me do." Thereupon hetook off what few clothes he wore, and stood stark naked; and assoon as the girl had done likewise he fell on his knees as though topray, and made her kneel face to face with him.

The Gentleman, having wisely collected his Love-lesson out of theHoly Fathers angry words, pacified the good old man so well as hecould with very solemne promises and protestations, that he shouldheare no more) any misbehaviour of his. And being gone from him,followed the instructions given in her complaint, by climbing over theGarden Wall, ascending the Tree, and entering at the Casement,standing ready open to welcome him. Thus the Friers simplicity,wrought on by her most ingenious subtiltie, made way to obtaine boththeir longing desires.

It is not unknown to thee, in how many kinds (for my first proofe) Igave thee harsh and unpleasing speeches, which drawing nodiscontentment from thee, either in lookes, words, or behaviour, butrather such comfort as my soule desired, and so in my othersucceedings afterward: in one minute now, I purpose to give theethat consolation, which I bereft thee of in many tempestuousstormes, and make a sweet restauration, for all thy former sowersufferinges. My faire and dearly affected Grizelda, shee whom thousupposest for my new elected Spouse, with a glad and cheerfull hart,imbrace for thine owne daughter, and this also her Brother, beeingboth of them thy children and mine, in common opinion of the vulgarmultitude, imagined to be (by my command) long since slaine. I amthy honourable Lord and Husband, who doth, and will love thee farreabove all women else in the world; giving thee justly this deservedpraise and commendation, That no man living hath the like Wife, as Ihave.

Youthfull Ladies, the discourses already past, have been so worthyand magnificent, yea, reaching to such a height of glorious splendour;as (me thinkes) there remaineth no more matter, for us that are yet tospeake, whereby to enlarge so famous an Argument, and in such manneras it ought to be: except we lay hold on the actions of love,wherein is never any want of subject, it is so faire and spacious afield to walke in. Wherefore, as well in behalfe of the one, asadvancement of the other, whereto our instant age is most of allinclined: I purpose to acquaint you with a generous and magnificentact, of an amourous Gentleman, which when it shall be duely consideredon, perhaps will appeare equall to any of the rest. At least, if itmay passe for currant, that men may give away their treasures, forgivemighty injuries, and lay downe life it selfe, honour and renowne(which is farre greater) to infinite dangers, only to attaine anything esteemed and affected.

Heere I am to tell you, that this Gentlewoman had a servant, inthe nature of an old maide, not indued with any well featured face,but instead thereof, she had the ugliest and most counterfeitcountenance, as hardly could be seene a worse. She had a wrie mouth,huge great lippes, foule teeth, great and blacke, a monstrous stinkingbreath, her eyes bleared, and alwayes running, the complexion of herface betweene greene and yellow, as if shee had not spent the Summerseason in the Citie, but in the parching Countrey under a hedge; andbeside all these excellent parts, shee was crooke backt, poult footed,and went like a lame Mare in Fetters. Her name was Ciuta, but inregard of her flat nose, lying as low as a Beagles, shee was calledCiutazza. Now, notwithstanding all this deformity in her, yet shehad a singuler opinion of her selfe, as commonly all such fouleSluts have: in regard whereof, Madame Piccarda calling her aside, thusbegan.

Ϸ11µġ˴սʵӭڣ No sooner were we there, but certaine rude shagge-haird villainesset upon us, carrying away from me both my women, then haling me alongby the haire of my head: neither teares or intercessions could drawany pitty from them. As thus they dragd me into a spacious Wood, fourehorsemen on a sodaine came riding by, who seeing how dishonourably thevillaines used me, rescued me from them, and forced them to flight.But the foure horsemen, seeming (in my judgement) to bee persons ofpower and authority, letting them go, came to me; urging sundryquestions to me, which neither I understood, or they mine answeres.After many deliberations held among themselves, setting me upon one oftheir horses, they brought me to a Monasterie of religious women,according to the custome of their Law: and there, whatsoever theydid or sayde, I know not, but I was most benignely welcommedthither, and honoured of them extraordinarily; where (with them inDevotion) I dedicated my selfe to the Goddesse of chastity, who ishighly reverenced and regarded among the women of that Countrey, andto her religious service they are wholly addicted. ϸ
