Of course, not all the folk in the County of Corndale are as pious as those inside of Father Gregory's kirk. After reluctantly leaving the charming village behind it was time to start on their journey again. But Bartholomew and Cor hadn't gone more than a few miles before a sneaky thief came at them from behind! He had a sharp knife and intended to steal Bartholomew's precious coin. The thief was quick, but was no match for Bartholomew's strength and staff. And the thief fled in a hurry, taking only a small portion of the travelers' belongings. But not before Cor took a bite or two out of the mean Thief's hindquarters! No doubt, the Thief with a patch on his eye will think twice before attacking travelers with dogs in the future, you can be sure!
