Panel 19 - The crook, sleeping by the roadside, is run over by a cart

Description:
In the third scene from the story (continued from panel 17), the crook falls asleep by the roadside but is run over by a passing cart, which kills him and breaks open his staff, revealing the stolen money within. The Jew he robbed is brought to witness the scene and declares that if St Nicholas, who has punished the thief, also has the power to revive him, then he will be convinced of the saint's power and will happily embrace christianity (continued in panel 18)
