The Hildiredarsons handed over the tribute from Lapp trading to the king.
“Is that all?” asked the king?
“It is” they replied.
“I must say it is much smaller and poorer quality than Thorolf used to bring” said the king.
And then the Hildiredarsons conjured up a big lie and told the king that Thorolf threated to kill them, that he had over a hundred men and they had only thirty, so they could not go up in the mountains to trade for fear of their lives, and that Thorolf was planning on becoming King of Finnmark and Halogaland.
They told the king what they knew about Thorgils Gjallandi and his trip to England.
The Hildiredarsons planted the next treacherous seed by saying “A ship has never been loaded with such fine and precious cargo. If I were you I would keep an eye on that ship.”
