Example text

His brother's wife Bersheba urgently offered me service with her brother-in-law Michael Twidd; I was in two minds about it, for I feared treachery from Thomas, because he bore a grudge against me. When Michael returned, he sent for me with Bersheba's advice: I therefore entered his service and had my poor goods moved to his house. But two days after it was learnt in Harwich that two ships belonging to the King of Denmark, Christian the Fourth, had come to London with gifts to King James 2. And when I heard that, my mind was quickly made up to ask Michael Twidd for permission to depart, which he granted me through the intercession and kindly sympathy of Bersheba.

We struggled and swayed about on the floor until we fell. Then the gentlefolks seized Thomas, who strove to free the boy, and there was a great uproar in the parlour. They blamed him severely for acting so towards a stranger: he made out it was my fault for demanding from him my goods which he had received from me in full charge for safe­ keeping, when I took service with him. And as I got no better response from him than has been said, I withdrew my promise to him in their hearing, since he had previously broken his.

Afterwards I fell ill, and I was given in charge of a couple who lived at HHS in the same district: the husband was Eyvind Jonsson, the wife GuSrun, Gu5mund's daughter, and they were honest folk. I was with them as foster-child for two years. In my seventh year I was set to books1. That year dysentery was much abroad in the land, and many were carried off by it2. Through that sickness, in the autumn, during the month of October, my blessed father passed away, and several other farmers of the neighbourhood.
