Harvard Classics


While i was turning over these calculations. The rich redoubled her insulting speeches. Always pressing big about her husband till she go to the beyond the bounds of reason yielding myself up to blind rage. I seized her by the hair and dragging her up and down my room beating and kicking her till i was tired. There was no one who had come to her assistance. When i had well pounded her. She swore that she would never visit me again. Then for the first time. I perceived that i had acted very wrongly for i was losing grand model. Who brought me honor through my art. Moreover i saw her body all torn and bruised and swollen. I reflected that even if i persuaded her to return. I should have to put her under medical treatment for at least a fortnight before i could make use of her after thirty five well to return to katharina. I sent my old serving woman named roberta who had most kindly disposition to help address. She brought food and drink to the miserable baggage and after rubbing a little bacon fat into her worst wounds they ate what was left of the meet together. When she had finished dressing she went off blaspheming and cursing all italians in the king's service and so returned with tears in murmurs to her home. Assuredly upon that first occasion. I felt.

So brutally when i excuse my conduct by narrating all the tricks which she and her mother had played off upon me under my own roof roberta scolding lee replied that that was nothing that was only french manners and she was sure. There was not a husband and france without his horns. When i heard this argument i laughed aloud and i told her to go and see how katrina was since. I should like to imply her again. While finishing the work i had on hand. The old woman took me sharply up saying that i had no savoir. Vivre only wait till daybreak. She will come of herself whereas if you send to ask. After her visit her she will give herself airs and keep away on the following morning. Katharina came to our door and knock so violently that being below iran to see whether it was a madman or some member of the household. When i open the creature laughed and fell upon my neck embracing and kissing me and asked me if i was still angry with her. I said no then she added. Let me have something good to break my fast on. So i supplied her well with food and partook of it at the same table in a sign of reconciliation afterwards. I began to model from her. During which occurred some amherst diversions and at last just at the same hour as on the previous day..
