65. Charny asks: A knight or a squire is angry with another so that the one speaks words of defiance to the other, and the one who has been defied finds himself at that moment the stronger. So he takes him immediately to his place without more delay and leads him away and ransoms him. Is he able to do this, at least in a country where one is allowed to take others as prisoners, for the one who made the defiance was not permitted to attack the other on the day of the defiance but not until the next day.
