17The man that was come in ⧼t⧽t to the house then spoke to the

18 nursingwoman and he asked her how it fared with the woman that lay
19there
113in childbed. The nursingwoman answered him and said that that
20 woman
114 was in throes now full three days and that it would be a hard birth
21 unneth
115 to bear but that now in a little it would be. She said thereto that she
22 had

26 women's woe in the travail that they have of
120 motherhood and he wondered
27 to look on her face that was a ⸢B[young]young fair fair B⸣ [young]young fair fair face for
121 any man to see but
28 yet was she left after long years a handmaid. Nine twelve

123
30And whiles they spake the door of the castle was opened and there
124
31 nighed them [(B)near]near a mickle noise as of many that sat there at meat. And
32 there
125 came against the place as they stood a young learningknight yclept
33 Dixon.
126 And the traveller Leopold was couth to him sithen it had happed
34 that they
127 had had ado each with other in the house of misericord where
35 this
128learningknight lay by cause the traveller Leopold came there to be

133 And the traveller

134 man of
7 cautels and a subtile. Also the lady was of his avis and repreved the
135
8learningknight though she trowed well that the traveller had said thing
9 that
136 was false for his subtility. But the learningknight would not hear say
10 nay
137 nor do her mandement ne have him in aught contrarious to his list and
11 he
138 said how it was a marvellous castle. And the traveller Leopold went into
12 the
139 castle ⸢(B)[to rest]to rest for to rest him for to rest him (B)⸣ [to rest]to rest for to rest him for to rest him for a space being sore of limb after

141
15And in the castle was set a board that was of the birchwood of
142
16 Finlandy and it was upheld by four dwarfmen of that country but they
143
17 durst not move more for enchantment. And on this board were frightful
144
18 swords and knives that are made in a great cavern by swinking demons out
145
19 of white flames that they fix then⸢BthenB⸣ in the horns of buffalos and stags that
146
20 there abound marvellously. And there were vessels that are wrought by

167
9This meanwhile this good sister stood by the door and begged them at
168
10 the reverence of Jesu our alther liege Lord to leave their wassailing for there
169
11 was above one quick with child, a gentle dame, whose time hied fast. Sir
170
12 Leopold heard ⸢(B)[in]in on on (B)⸣ [in]in on on the upfloor cry on high and he wondered what
13 cry that it
171 was whether of child or woman and I marvel, said he, that⸢(B)that(B)⸣ it
14 be not come ⧼ere⧽ere or
172 now. Meseems it dureth overlong. And he was ware
15 and saw a franklin that
173 hight Lenehan on that side the table that was older
16 than any ⧼other⧽other of the tother ⧼other⧽other of the tother
174 and for that they both⸢(B)both(B)⸣ were knights
17virtuous in the one emprise and eke by
175 cause that he was elder he spoke to
18 him full gently. But, said he, or it be
176 long too she will bring forth by God
19 His bounty and have joy of her
177childing
⸢2of her
177childing2⸣
for she hath waited marvellous
20 long. And the franklin that had
178 drunken said, Expecting each moment to be
21 her next. Also he took the cup
179 that stood tofore him for him needed never
22 none asking nor desiring of him
180 to drink and, Now drink, said he, fully
23delectably, and he quaffed as far as
181 he might to their both's health for he
24 was a passing good man of his
182 lustiness. And sir Leopold that was the
25 goodliest guest that ever sat in
183 scholars' hall and that was the meekest man
26 and the kindest that ever laid
184 husbandly ⧼un⧽un hand under hen and that was

186 cup. Woman's woe
29 with wonder pondering.


187
30Now let us speak of that fellowship that was there to the intent to be
188
31 drunken an they might. There was a sort of scholars along either side the
189
32 board, that is to wit, Dixon yclept junior of saint Mary Merciable's⸢(B)of saint Mary Merciable's(B)⸣
33 with
190 other his fellows Lynch and ⧼madden⧽madden Madden, scholars of medicine,
34 and the franklin
191 that hight Lenehan and one from Alba Longa, one
35 Crotthers, and young
192 Stephen that had mien of a frere that was at head
36 of the board and Costello
193 that men clepen Punch Costello all long of a
1 mastery of him erewhile gested
194 (and of all them, reserved young Stephen,
2 he was the most drunken that
195 demanded still of more mead) and beside the
3 meek sir Leopold. But on
196 young Malachi they waited for that he promised
4 to have come and such as
197 intended to no goodness said how he had broke
5 his avow. And sir Leopold
198 sat with them for he bore fast friendship to sir
6 Simon and to this his son
199 young Stephen and for that his languor
7 becalmed him there after longest
200 wanderings insomuch as they feasted him
8 for that time in the honourablest
201 manner. Ruth red him, love led on with
9 will to wander, loth to leave.


202
10For they were right witty scholars. And he heard their aresouns each
203
11 gen other as touching birth and righteousness, young Madden maintaining
204
12 that put such case it were hard the wife to die (for so it had fallen out a
205
13 matter of some year agone with a woman of Eblana in Horne's house that
206
14 now was trespassed out of this world and the self night next before her
207
15 death all leeches and pothecaries had taken counsel of her case). And they
208
16 said farther she should live because in the beginning, they said, the
17 woman
209 should bring forth in pain and wherefore they that were of this
18 imagination
210 affirmed how young Madden had said truth for he had
19 conscience to let her
211 die. And not few and of these was youngyoung Lynch were
20 in doubt that the
212 world was now right evil governed as it was never other
21 howbeit the mean
213 people believed it otherwise but the law nor his judges did
22 provide no
214 remedy. A redress God grant.⸢2A redress God grant.2⸣ This was scant said but all cried

27 at the least way mirth might not lack. Then young

239 too open by reason of a strange humour
19 which he would not bewray and
240 also for that he rued for her that bare

261 that he
10 who stealeth from the poor lendeth to the Lord for he was of a wild
262 manner
11 when he was drunken and that he was now in that taking it
263 appeared
12 eftsoons.


264
13But sir Leopold was passing grave maugre his word by cause he still
265
14 had pity of the terrorcausing shrieking of shrill women in their labour and
266
15 as he was minded of his good lady Marion that had borne him an only
267
16 manchild which on his eleventh day on live had died and no man of art
268
17 could save so dark is destiny. And she was wondrous stricken of heart for
269
18 that evil hap and ⸢(B)[to his burial, sore weeping,]to his burial, sore weeping, for his burial for his burial (B)⸣ [to his burial, sore weeping,]to his burial, sore weeping, for his burial for his burial did him on

271 ⸢(B)[that time]that time then then (B)⸣ [that time]that time then then about the midst of the
21 winter) and now sir Leopold that had of his
272 body no manchild for an heir
22 looked upon him his friend's son and was
273 shut up in sorrow for his
23 forepassed happiness and as sad as he was that
274 him failed a son of such
24 gentle courage (for all accounted him of real parts)
275 so grieved he also in no
25 less measure for young Stephen for that he lived
276 riotously with those
26 wastrels and murdered his goods with whores. 🕮


277
27About that present time young Stephen filled all cups that stood empty
278
28 so as there remained but little mo if the prudenter had not shadowed their
279
29 approach from him that still plied it very busily who, praying for the
280

21 young Stephen what was the reason why he
336 had not cided to take friar's
22 vows and he answered him obedience in the
337 womb, chastity in the tomb but
23 involuntary poverty all his days. Master
338 Lenehan at this made return that
24 he had heard of those nefarious deeds and
339 how, as he heard hereof counted,
25 he had besmirched the lily virtue of a
340 confiding female which was
26 corruption of minors and they all intershowed
341 it too, waxing merry and
27 toasting to his fathership. But he said very entirely
342 it was clean contrary to
28 their suppose for he was the eternal son and ever
343 virgin. Thereat mirth grew
29 in them the more and they rehearsed to him his

After this homily

697 delivered with much warmth of asseveration Mr Mulligan in a
31 trice put off
698 from his hat a kerchief with which he had shielded it. They

their pace had

35 project meanwhile was
702 very favourably entertained by his auditors and won
36 hearty eulogies from
703 all though Mr Dixon of Mary's excepted to it, asking
1 with a finicking air
704 did he purpose also to carry coals to Newcastle. Mr
2 Mulligan however
705 made court to the scholarly by an apt quotation from the

15 upon the project he had
717 advanced. The young gentleman, his friend,
16 overjoyed as he was at a
718 passage that had late⸢BlateB⸣ befallen him, could not
17 forbear to tell it his nearest
719 neighbour. Mr Mulligan, now perceiving the
18 table, asked for whom were
720 ⧼the⧽the those loaves and fishes and, seeing the
19stranger, he made him a civil bow
721 and said, Pray, sir, was you in need of
20 any professional assistance we could
722 give? Who, upon his offer, thanked
21 him very heartily, though preserving his
723 proper distance, and replied that he
22 was come there about a lady, now an
724 inmate of Horne's house, that was in
23 an interesting condition, poor body,
725from woman's woe (and here he
24 fetched a deep sigh) to know if her
726 happiness had yet taken place. Mr
25 Dixon, to turn the table, took on to ask
727of Mr Mulligan himself whether
26 his incipient ventripotence, upon which he
728 rallied him, betokened an

20 and, opening his

755 which he had cherished ever since her hand had wrote
22 therein. Gazing
756 upon those features with a world of tenderness, Ah,

765 these words and,
32 having replaced the locket in his bosom, he wiped his eye
766 and sighed again.

767 how great and
