What sirha, well I see earlie prickes the tree that will prooue a thorne: I can quickly remedie such a fault, and I will bende the tree while it is a wand: In faith sir boy I haue a snaffle for such a headstro[n]g colt.

Brothers frownes ought not to be periods of wrath: These wordes appeased the choller of ROSADER, for hee was of a milde and courteous nature so that he laide downe his weapons, and vpon the faith of a Gentleman assured his brother he would offer him rosalynde thomas lodge preiudice: Vpon these sugred reco[n]ciliations they went into the house arme in arme together, to the great content of all the old seruants of Sir IOHN of Bourdeaux.

Hauing thus the Champion tied to his vilanous determination by oath, he prosecuted the intent of his purpose thus.

Hee went to young ROSADER, who in all his thoughts reacht at honour, and gazed no lower than vertue commaunded him and began to tell him of this Tournament and Wrastling, how the King should be there, and all the chiefe Peeres pf France, with all the beautifull damosels of the Countrey: For my selfe thou knowest though I am eldest by birth, yet neuer hauing attempted any deedes of Armes, I am yongest to performe any Martiall exploytes, knowing better how to survey my lands, than to charge my Launce: But leauing rosalynde thomas lodge so desirous of the iourney: Amongst the rest he had appointed this solemne Tournament, whereunto he in most solemne manner resorted, accompanied with the twelue Peeres of France, who rather for feare than loue graced him with the shewe of their dutifull fauours: Thus in that place did Loue and Warre triumph in a simpathie: As euerie mans eye had his seuerall suruey, and fancie was partiall in their lookes, yet all in generall rosalynde thomas lodge the admirable riches that Nature bestowed on the face of ROSALYND: The tramells of her hayre, foulded in a call of gold, so farre surpast the burnisht glister of the mettall, as the Sunne dooth the meanest Starre in brightnesse: At this vnlookt for massacre, the people murmured, and were all in a deepe passion of pittie; but the FRANCKLIN, Father vnto these, neuer changed his countenance; but as a ma[n] of a courageous resolution, tooke vp the bodies of his Sonnes without any shew of outward discontent.

Bolde yeoman whose sonnes haue ended the tearme of their yeares with honour, for that I see thou scornest fortune with patience, and t[hw]artest the inurie of fate with content, in brooking the death of thy Sonnes: The NORMAN seeing this young Gentleman fettered in the lookes of the Ladies, draue him out of his memento with a shake by the shoulder; ROSADER looking back with an angrie frowne, as if he had been wakened from some pleasant dreame, discouered to all by the furie of his countenance that he was a man of some high thoughts: The death of this Champion; as it highly contented the FRANCKLIN, as a man satisfied with reuenge, so it drue the King and all the Peeres into a great admiration, that so young yeares and so beautifull a personage, should containe such martiall excellence: To retourne her with the like he was vnfurnished, and yet that hee might more than in his lookes discouer his affection, he stept into a tent, and taking pen and paper writ this fancie.
