1 "I know little of the Knight of Ivanhoe," answered the Palmer, with a troubled voice.
2 Waldemar, whose curiosity had led him towards the place where Ivanhoe had fallen to the ground, now returned.
3 Should Athelstane of Coningsburgh obtain the prize, Ivanhoe is like to hear evil tidings when he reaches England.
4 The few of his followers who have returned have straggled hither like this Wilfred of Ivanhoe, beggared and broken men.
5 Waldemar Fitzurse hastened to reply, that Ivanhoe was already removed from the lists, and in the custody of his friends.

8 The name of Ivanhoe was no sooner pronounced than it flew from mouth to mouth, with all the celerity with which eagerness could convey and curiosity receive it.
9 He ordered, however, Oswald to keep an eye upon him; and directed that officer, with two of his serfs, to convey Ivanhoe to Ashby as soon as the crowd had dispersed.
