 page 37

Texto  español English text
  -Si alguno de vosotros se atreve a ser el primero mientras yo habite en el castillo del Segre, que tome esa espada, signo del poder.

Todos guardamos silencio, hasta que, transcurrido el primer momento de estupor, le proclamamos a grandes voces nuestro capitán, ofreciéndole una copa de nuestro vino, la cual rehusó por señas, acaso por no descubrir la faz, que en vano procuramos distinguir a través de las rejillas de hierro que la ocultaban a nuestros ojos.
