166. VIII. THAT WITH THIS CONJUNCTION AS AN END, THE WIFE IS GIVEN A PERCEPTION OF THE AFFECTIONS OF THE HUSBAND AND ALSO THE HIGHEST PRUDENCE IN MODERATING THEM. That wives know the affections of their husbands, and that they prudently moderate them, is also among the arcana of conjugial love stored up with wives. They know them by three senses, sight, hearing, and touch; and they moderate them all unknown to their husbands. Since these matters are among the arcana of wives, it does not become me to disclose them circumstantially; but for wives themselves to do so, is becoming. Therefore, at the end of the chapters follow four Memorable Relations in which these arcana are disclosed by them; two [nos. 156e and 208] by the three wives dwelling in the hall upon which was seen falling a golden shower, as it were, and two (nos. 293, 294) by the seven wives sitting in a rose garden. If these are read, this arcanum will be seen unveiled.
