 page 51

Texto  español English text
  La nueva se divulgó con la rapidez del pensamiento entre la multitud, que aguardaba impaciente el resultado del juicio; y fue tal alarma, la revuelta y la vocería, que ya a nadie cupo duda sobre lo que de pública voz se aseguraba, esto es, que el diablo, a la muerte del señor del Segre, había heredado los feudos de Bellver.

Al fin se apaciguó el tumulto, y decidiose volver a un calabozo la maravillosa armadura.
Ya en él, despacháronse cuatro emisarios, que en representación de la atribulada villa hiciesen presente el caso al conde de Urgel y al arzobispo, los que no tardaron muchos días en tornar con la resolución de estos personajes, resolución que, como suele decirse, era breve y compendillosa.

To the end the tumult calmed down, and it was decided to return to a cell the wonderful armor.
Already in him, there served themselves four emissaries, who in representation of anxious were making town present the case to the count of Urgel and to the archbishop, which were not late many days in returning with the resolution of these personages, resolution that, since it usually said, was brief and compendillosa.
