In Eleven fmall 8vo. Volumes,

notwithstanding the Husband had the ftrongest Defire imaginable to enjoy his lovely Spoufe, yet in all that Time he could not. He imagined therefore that he was bewitched, and that his Impotency was the Effect of fome Charm; his Wife too believed that this was really the A Cafe, and lived with him very affectionately, notwithstanding the Suggestions of her Friends, that the might lawfully leave him; the conftantly anfwered that, as her Love was not fenfual, he would not forfake her Husband.



HIS Collection, tho' compiled with the ftricteft Regard to Matter of Fact, is fill'd with fuch wonderful Relations, and aftonishing Events, as the wildeft Imagination could fcarcely have invented; fo that the C Reader feels, in the Perufal, all the Surprize which is excited by the Marvellous, and all the Satisfaction which

The poor Girl, however, neglected not any Means which the Intelligent advifed her to, for diffolving the Charm. (She had four Maffes faid, and eat fome Hofts, and confecrated Cakes.) At length Martin's Wifhes and hers had their might be his tender Age, an Ability of Effect, for the Caufe ceafing, which Confummation followed in his twentieth Year; fo that in the tenth Year after their Marriage, fhe brought him a Son, named Saxxi.

of Corn, thought fit to withdraw to avoid his Refentment. At first, in all Probability, he did not intend to abfent himfelf long, but being either charmed with the Liberty which he enjoyed, or having conceived a Dislike of his Wife, which neither Beauty nor Prudence can always prevent, he for above eight Years together forb re giving the leaft Notice to her or his Family where he was. This might well have exafperated a young Woman in Bertrande's Circumstances: But fo unexceptionable was her Carriage, that fhe never did any thing which deferved Blame, nor provoked the Tongues even of thofe who are ready to cenfure without Reafon.


heard of. He related the Reafon which induced him to leave his Habitation, and his Adventures from the Time that he quitted it; he said, that he served the King in his Wars between feven and eight Years, that afterwards he lifted himself in the Troops of the King of defirSpain; but that most earnestly ing to return to his dear Wife and Family, he quitted that Service in a few Months, and made the beft of his way to Artigues; that on his Arrival he had the Satisfaction of being received, not with B-tanding the Alteration which Time, and the cutting off his Hair,might have made, with the utmoft Joy, by all his Relations and Acquaintance, not excepting this very Peter Guerre, who had stirred up the prefent Profecution. That this Man having frequently differed with him fince his coing Home, their Quarrels fometimes had produced Blows, and that once he would have killed him with a Bar of Iron, had not his Wife interpofed. Thefe Particulars he digefted into his Answer to the Bill of Complaint, preferr'd by Bertrande de Rols, praying in the Clofe thereof,

At the end of eight Years he was congratulated by her Husband's 4 Sifters, his Uncle, and her own Relations, on his Return; fhe, who had figh'd deeply for his Abfence, was extremely joyful, and in the Space of three Years had two Children by this Renewal of Marriage A Rites; one of which dy'd as foon as it was born. During this Space she and her new-reftored Husband lived with great he Tranquillity at Artigues, where tranfacted feveral Affairs, fold Eftates there, and in Biscay, and figned the Contracts in due Form. But after fome time, all of a fudden, Bertrande cauled him to be apprehended, and prefented a Bill of Complaint against him before the Criminal Judge of Rieux; praying in the Clofe thereof, That he might be condemned to make Satisfaction to the King for the Breach of his Laws, to demand Pardon of God, the King and her, in his C Shirt, a lighted Torch in his Hand; declaring, that he had falfly, rafhly and traiterously impofed upon her, in af fuming the Name, and paffing himself upon her for Martin Guerre; and that he fhould be further adjudged to pay her two thousand Livres for Cofts and Damages.'

[ocr errors]

This Profecution occafioned various Conjectures: Many were of Opinion, that it arofe from fome Diftafte the Woman had taken to the Man; or that it was a Piece of Revenge on account of a Quarrel between them; others, confidering the good Character which fhe had hitherto born, and that he was naturally of a mild complying Temper, imagined that fhe was at firit eafily prevailed on to be lieve this Man her Husband, and, again, as easily perfuaded to give Credit to the Suggeftions of Peter Guerre her Husband's Uncle, who with fome Perfons in Town pretended to have difcovered him to be an Impoftor, and perfuaded her to apply to the Magistrate. They concluded thus, because it is no uncommon Thing for Perfons of an indolent Difpofition to act like mere Machines, as they are influenced by others.

On the other hand, the Man exclaimed against the wicked Confpiracy which his Relations and his Wife had formed against him. He pleaded in his Defence before Judge of Rieux, PeterGuerre his Uncle had contrived this Plot merely with a View to poflefs himself of his Effects which were to the Value of 8,000 Livres; that he had drawn in his Wife, thro' the Weakness of her Understanding, to be a Party in this black Affair, and that a more execrable Vilainy was


[ocr errors]
[ocr errors]

That his Wife might be confronted with Dhim, because he could not poffibly believe that he was yet fo wicked a Woman as abfolutely to deny the Truth. That his Calumniators might, according to the Laws of Equity, be condemned to fuffer thofe Punishments they 'would have inflicted upon him; that Bertrande de Rols fhould be taken out of 'the Power of his Enemies, and be hin'dred from diffipating his Effects; in fine, 'that he fhould be declared Innocent of the Crimes alledged against him, and the Profecution be dismissed with Costs.”




[ocr errors]

He fubmitted to a long Examination before the Criminal Judge, who interrogated him as to Matters which happen'd in Biscay, the Place of Martin Guerre's Birth, his Father, his Mother, Brothers, Sifters, and other Relations, as to the Year, the Month, and the Day of his (Martin Guerre's) Marriage, his Fatherin-Law, Mother-in-Law, the Perfons who were prefent at the Nuptials, thofe who dined with them, their different Dreflès, the Prieft who performed the Ceremony, all the little Circumstances that happen'd that Day, and the next, even to naming People who put them to Bed. His Anfwers were clear and di ftin&t to each of thefe Points, and as if H he had not been fatisfy'd with performing what the Judge required of him; he fpoke of his own accord of his Son Sanxi, of the Day he was born, of his own Departure, of the Perfons he met with on
