Quixote is Dubbed a Knight

Chapter III

Quixote asks the landlord of the inn to dub him a knight, and after Quixote has two altercations with two different muleteers in the yard of the inn, the landlord knights Quixote that moment so that he can be on his way before any more complications arise.


Chapter IV
Quixote encounters two adventures: one, in which he intervenes in the punishment of a servant by his master, thinking he did a good deed by threatening the countryman for the mistreatment of his servant, and two, in which he tries to force a band of traders to agree that his lady, Dulinea, is fairer than the Empress.  In this last encounter, the traders pummel him, although Quixote conveniently blames his horse for his misfortune.
