<HI>Musidorus,</HI> that he should loue: so that something cleering his face from his former shewes of griefe; Wel (saidhe) deare cousin, I see by the well choosing of your commandementes, that you are fitter to be a Prince, then a Counseller: and therfore I am resolued to imploy all my endeuour to o|bey you; with this condition, that the comandementes ye commaund me to lay vpon you, shall onely be, that you continue to loue me, and looke vpon my imperfe|ctions, with more affection then iudgeme~t. Loue you? (said he) alas, how can my hart be seperated from the true imbrasing of it, without it burst, by being too full of it? But (said he) let vs leaue of these flowers of newe begun frendship: and now I pray you againe tel me; but tell it me fully, omitting no circumstance, the storie of your affections, both beginning, and proceeding: assu|ring your selfe, that there is nothing so great, which I will feare to doo for you: nor nothing so small which I will disdaine to doo for you. Let me therfore receiue a cleere vndersta~ding, which many times we misse, while those things we account small, as a speech, or a look are omitted, like as a whole sentence may faile of his con|gruitie, by wanting one particle. Therefore betweene frends, all must be layd open, nothing being superflu|ous, nor tedious. You shalbe obeyed (said

<HI>Ama|zons</HI> to seeke me, and then let me alone for the rest. So sate they downe, and
<HI>Pyrocles</HI> thus said.</P></DIV2>
