Ivanhoe Chapter 11
Gurth worries about his treasure as he makes his way through the woods alone. His fears are realized when four men jump out at him, insisting he turn over his money. Gurth tries to keep his master's money safe from the muggers, but they do not believe him, nor do they believe a Jew gave him money so freely. Examining his purse they find his tale to be true, and decide to let him fight for his freedom. After a long scuffle Gurth wins, and the thieves let him pass, on the condition he tells no one. Reaching the Knight's quarters, Gurth cannot help but tell his surprised master about the Jewess Rebecca and the thieves in the woods.
