|Summary of narrative|
|Setting:||Lombardy and Salas||Protagonist(s):||a squire|
A squire, a man of noble birth, was badly wounded by an arrow while fighting in Lombardy.
The arrow was shot from a crossbow and struck him in the side.
The squire was so badly injured, he was certain he would die.
He commended himself to the Virgin.
The arrow was drawn out cleanly from his other side. Instantly the wound healed, leaving no visible scar.
Everyone who saw this praised Holy Mary of Salas and advised the squire to go there on pilgrimage.
