Death of Thorolf Kveldulfsson.

King Harold was at Hlada when
the brothers went away.
Immediately after this the king made
him ready with all haste,
and embarked his force on four ships,
and they rowed up the firth,
and so by Beitis-sea inwards
to the isthmus of Elda.
There he left his ships behind,
and crossed the isthmus northwards
to Naumdale.
The king there took ships belonging to
the landowners,
and embarked his force on them,
having with him his guard;
four hundred men they were.
Six ships he had well
equipped both with weapons and men.
They encountered a fresh head-wind,
and rowed night and day,
making what progress they could.
The night was then light enough for travel.
