The duke of Ossuna, viceroy of Naples, once visited the
galleys, and passing through the prisoners, he asked several of them what
their offences were. All of them excused themselves upon various pretences;

of his purse." The duke, on hearing this, gave him a blow on the shoulder

then set at liberty, while the rest were left to tug at the oar.
