Dianora,blushing with modest shame, and the teares trickling mainly down herfaire cheekes, thus answered. Signior Ansaldo, not for any Love Ibeare you, or care of my faithfull promise made to you, but onely bythe command of my husband (who respecting more the paynes and trave ofyour inordinate love, then his owne reputation and honor, or mine;)hath caused me to come hither: and by vertue of his command, amready (for once onely) to fulfill your pleasure, but far from any willor consent in my selfe. If Signior Ansaldo were abashed at thefirst, hee began now to be more confounded with admiration, when heheard the Lady speake in such strange manner: and being much movedwith the liberall command of her husband, he began to alter hisinflamed heate, into most honourable respect and compassion, returningher this answer.

Greatjupiter strike me dead with thunder, having my selfe seene a husbandso liberall of his honour, and you Sir of true noble kindnesse, if Ishould not be the like of my recompence: for, perceiving it to be soworthily imployed, I am well contented that you shal keepe it. TheNoble Lord was modestly ashamed, and strove (so much as in him lay)that he should take all, or the greater part thereof: but seeing helaboured meerly in vaine, after the third day was past, and theMagitian had destroyed the Garden againe, hee gave him free liberty todepart, quite controlling all fond and unchaste affection in himselfe,either towards Dianora, or any Lady else, and living (ever after) asbest becommeth any Nobleman to do.客户
端下What say you now Ladies? Shal wee make any account of the womanwel-neere dead, and the kindnesse growne cold in Signiour Gentile,by losse of his former hopes, comparing them with the liberality ofSignior Ansaldo, affecting more fervently, then ever the other did?And being (beyond hope) possessed of the booty, which (above allthings else in the world) he most desired to have, to part with itmeerly in fond compassion?
