Honuphrius is a concupiscent exserviceman who makes dishonest propositions to all. He is considered to have committed simple infidelities with Felicia, a virgin, and to be practising for unnatural coits with Eugenius and Jeremias, twoº philadelphians. Honuphriusº, Felicia, Eugenius and Jeremias are consanguineous to the lowest degree. Anita,º the wife of Honuphriusº, has been told by her tirewoman, Fortissa, that Honuphrius has confessed under voluntary chastisement that he has instructed his slave Mauritius, a widower,º to facilitate their neighbour Magravius,º a commercialº emulous of Honuphrius, to solicit the chastity of Anita. Anitaº isº informed by some illegitimate children
{f10, 446}
of Fortissa with Mauritius that Gillia, the wife of Magravius, is visited clandestinely by Barnabas, the advocate of Honuphrius, an immoral person who has been corrupted by Jeremias. Gillia has been tenderly debauched by Honuphrius,º and Magravius knows from spies that Anita has formerly committed double sacrilege with Michael, a perpetual curateº who wishes to seduce Eugenius. Magravius threatens to have Anita molested by Sulla, |2a bandit a savage |a(and leader of a band of twelve mercenaries, the Sullivani)ºa|2| who desires to procure Felicia for Gregorius, Leo, Vitellius and Macdugalius, four excavators, if she will not yield to him and also deceive Honuphrius by rendering |2marital conjugal2| duty when demanded. Anita,º who claims to have discovered incestuous temptations from Jeremias and Eugenius,º would yield to the lewdness of Honuphrius to appease |2Magravius the |aferocity savagerya| of Sulla and the mercernariness of the |atwelvea| Sullivaniº2| and to save the virginity of Felicia for Magravius,º when converted by Michael after the death of Gillia,º but she fears thatº by allowing his marital rights she may cause reprehensible conduct between Eugenius and Jeremias. Michael, who has formerly debauched Anita, dispenses her from yielding to Honuphrius who pretends publicly to possess his |2woman conjunct2| in |2thirtynine2| several manners |2(turpiter!)2| for carnal hygiene whenever he has rendered himself impotent to consummate by subdolence. Anita is disturbed,º but Michael comminates that he will reserve her case |2tomorrow2| for the ordinary |2Guglielmus2| even if she should practise a pious fraud during affrication which, from experience, she knows to be |2leading to2| nullity. Fortissa, however, |2encourages is encouraged by Gregorius, Leo, Vitelliusº and Magdugalius to warn2| Anita by describing the |2strong2| chastisements of Honuphrius and the depravities |2(turpissimas!)2| of Canicula, the deceased wife of Mauritius, with Sulla who repents. Has he hegemony and shall she submit?

This is perhaps the commonest of all casesº in our courts of litigation. |2|aDoyle D'Oylya|2| Owens holds that so long as there is a joint deposit account in the two names a mutual obligation is posited. |v+2He Owensv+|2| cites Brerfuchs and Warren, a |2foreign2| firm registered as Tangos, Limited,º for the sale of certain proprietary articles.
