Facetiae

"Visio Francisci Philelphi" is a facetia from the Facetiae. It was adapted by Rabelais to Carvel's Ring.

Franciscus Philelphus, zelotypus uxoris, summa cura torquebatur, ne cum altero rem haberet, semper dies ac noctes ad ejus custodiam intentus. Huic dormienti, per somnium (fit enim, ut quae vigilantes versamus animo, in somniis saepius occurrant), visus est Daemon quidam uxoris securitatem polliceri, si, quae admoneret, vellet facere. Et cum per somnium annuisset, idque sibi pergratum fore diceret, simul praemium pollicitus: - 'Cape hunc,' ille inquit, 'annulum et diligenter in digito serva. Nam dum in eo gestaveris hunc, nunquam uxor, te inscio, cum alio concumbet.' Prae gaudio excitatus a somno, sensit se digitum habere in uxoris cunno. Optimum quidem ejus annuli zelotypis remedium, ne uxores, ignorantibus viris, possint esse incontinentes.
