Of Skallagrim and Bjorn.

It befell in autumn, when ships had come to Iceland from Norway,
that this report came over, how Bjorn had run away with Thora without
the consent of her kin, and for that the king had made him an outlaw from Norway.
But when Skallagrim got to know this, he called Bjorn to him,
and asked how it had been with his marriage;
had it been made with the consent of his wife's kin.

'I never looked for this,' said he,
'in a son of Brynjolf,
that I should not know
the truth from him.'
Bjorn answered,
'Truth only told I to you,
Grim, and you may not rebuke me for this,
though I told you no further than you asked.
But now I must own this, which is true,
that you have heard truth about this match not being
made with the agreement of Thorir, my wife's brother.
