On Saladin hearing of the peace which had been made with the Christians, he pretended that it had not been made with his sanction. On the thirteenth day of the month of July, the king of France and the king of England divided between themselves the city of Acre, and everything that was in it, both the pagans as well as the gold and silver, and all other articles of property ; on which Drogo de Herlou and a hundred knights were named on behalf of the king of France to receive his share ; and Hugh de Gurnay and a hundred knights were appointed on behalf of the king of England to receive his proportion.
