Example text

Few Norwegians have been entirely naturalized city-dwellers. Littie Uranienborg to an outsider might have appeared distinctly rural, to Jens Engebreth it was uncomfortably urban. His roots were in the country, by the water. For the summer and Christmas school holidays, the Amundsens regularly went back to Hvidsten - although often without Gustava, who preferred the company of her own family scattered over Southern Norway. Jens Engebreth had sold his house at Hvidsten, but a nephew was the buyer.

To finish off, he conveyed an appealing vision of the life of the Eskimo, a noble Polar savage. It appealed profoundly to the romantic nature worship which then was taking hold of the Norwegians. The effect on Amundsen was immediate. He commandeered an old school friend who had been with him on the ski tour four years earlier, and persuaded him then and there to repeat the performance. They collected their skis and went straight from Astrup's lecture into Nordmarka skiing in the dark. The night 53 was far advanced when they reached their destination.

We have much to be grateful to God for. He brought our father home to us, even if not alive, but dead, when he so easily could have been thrown overboard, and how much worse it would have been for us then, but now we have the consolation that we can go and see him in the chapel. He is unchanged, he is exactly as he was when he walked among us. He is so lovely, as he lies, in his long white shroud, strewn with flowers. Last night at 8 o'clock we were there for the last time to see him and say farewell.
