Excerpt from The Decameron of Giovanni Boccacci (IL Boccaccio), Vol. 1

Z'.e. Those not in love.diversion. In these stories will be found love-chances,* both gladsome and grievous, and other accidents of fortune befallen as well in times present as in days of old, whereof the ladies aforesaid, who shall read them, may at once take solace from the delectable things therein shown forth and useful counsel, inasmuch as they may learn thereby what is to be eschewed and what is on like wise to be ensued, - the which methinketh cannot betide without cease of chagrin. If it 'happen thus (as God grant it may) let them render thanks therefor to Love, who, by loosing me from his bonds, hath vouchsafed me the power of applying myself to the service of their pleasures.
