  Éstos, que se encontraban autorizados por los condes de Urgel para administrarse por sí mismos pronta y severa justicia sobre aquellos malhechores, deliberaron un momento, pasado el cual, mandaron comparecer al delincuente a fin de notificarle su sentencia.
Como dejo dicho, así en la plaza Mayor, como en las calles por donde el prisionero debía atravesar para dirigirse al punto en que sus jueces se encontraban, la impaciente multitud hervía como un apiñado enjambre de abejas. Especialmente en la puerta de la cárcel, la conmoción popular tomaba cada vez mayores proporciones; ya los animados diálogos, los sordos murmullos y los amenazadores gritos comenzaban a poner en cuidado a sus guardas, cuando afortunadamente llegó la orden de sacar al reo.

Since I stop the above mentioned, like that in the Biggest square, as in the streets where the prisoner had to cross to go to the point in which his judges were, the impatient multitude was boiling as a packed swarm of bees.
