Now trust me Sir, there is no greatdifficultie in this labour, neither doth it require anyextraordinary length of time: but it may very easily be followed andperformed, and (by your friendly favor, in helping to direct theFurnace and Table, according as you imagine most convenient) on Sundayat night next, I will begin my taske.The place which Puccio had chosen, for his hopefull attaining tothe Philosophers Stone, was close to the Chamber where his daughterlay having no other separation or division, but an old ruinoustottring wall. So that, when the Scholler was playing his prize,Puccio heard an unwonted noise in the house, which he had neverobserved before, neither knew the wall to have any such motion:wherefore, not daring to stirre from his standing, least all should bemarrd in the very beginning, he called to his daughter, demanding,what busle labour she was about? The widdow, being much addicted tofrumping according as questions were demanded of her, and (perhaps)forgetting who spake to her, pleasantly replied: Whoop Sir, whereare we now? Are the Spirits of Alchimy walking in the house, that wecannot lye quietly in our beds?

The subtle wench,remembring that she had not answered as became her, said: Pardon meeFather, my wits were not mine owne, when you demanded such a sodainequestion; and I have heard you say an hundred times, that when folkego supperles to bed, either they walke in their sleepe, or beingawake, talke very idely, as (no doubt) you have discernd by me. Naydaughter (quoth he) it may be, that I was in a waking dreame, andthought I heard the olde wall totter: but I see I was deceived, for noit is quiet and still enough. Talke no more good Father, saide she,least you stirre from your place, and hinder your labour: take no carefor mee, I am able enough to have care of my selfe.链信APP官方下载链信链信To prevent any more of these nightly disturbances, they went tolodge in another part of the house, where they continued out thetime of Puccioes paines, with equall contentment to them both, whichmade her divers times say to Felice: You teach my father the cheefegrounds of Alchimy, while we helpe to waste away his treasure. Thusthe Scholler being but poore, yet well forwarded in Learning, made useof Puccioes folly, and found benefit thereby, to keepe him out ofwants, which is the bane and overthrow of numberlesse good wits. AndPuccio dying, before the date of his limited time, because he failedof the Philosophers Stone, Isabetta joyned in marriage with Felice, tomake him amends for instructing her father, by which meanes he came tobe her husband.链信
