A young man walking down a rocky mountain road was set upon by robbers. Beating him senseless and seizing his possessions, they fled. A Gentleman came upon him and took him to an Inn.
The Gentleman declared "I shall bring him along and tend his wounds, for when he wakes, on that evening he will dine with me!" And so it happened.
The next morning the young man gave thanks and went on his way.
Upon the way he came across the same robbers, and upon them seeing him, they fled, for they were small in number. The victim wore clothes with the same crest as the traveler did, provided by the Gentleman. When the second traveler noticed this he cried out, "The crest of my father, of whom I have searched for!"
They traveled back to the place where the Gentleman was, and behold! He was there! The father and son then embraced, and the moral of this story was made known.
