CHAPTER 65
In which an account is given who the Knight of the White Moon was; with the liberty of Don Gregorio, and other accidents.

DON ANTONIO MORENO followed the Knight of the White Moon. A great number of boys also pursued and persecuted him, till they had lodged him in an inn within the city. Don Antonio went in after him, being desirous to know who he was. His squire came out to receive and unarm him. He shut himself up in a lower room, and with him Don Antonio, whose cake was dough, till he knew who he was. He of the White Moon perceiving that this gentleman would not leave him, said:
