I w i l l turn to speak a little of his brother-in-law, En Conrado Lansa, and tell of a fine thing which, by the favour of God and of the Lord King En Pedro of Aragon, happened to him. It is the truth that the Lord King En Pedro should come first, but I wish to tell and recount it to you now, for it may as well be done at once than later, and I will do it now, whilst I remember the affairs concerning those two richs homens; and it is better to speak now of that deed performed by the said noble En Conrado Lansa than further on. For a man, when he speaks the truth, can relate any deed in any part of the book. And perhaps I should have to speak of it in a place where it would disturb my narrative; and, besides, it is not a long story. And so I pray all to forgive me if in this place or in another they find I tell them things before their proper time. Nevertheless, if they ask me for reasons, I shall give them such as will make them excuse me ; but, whatever the reasons I give you, be sure that everything you will find written is the truth, and of this have no doubt whatever. So then I wish to tell you the favour God did to that rich horn En Conrado Lansa.
