Feast

The men then went to their temporary homes; their booths. Thorstein had his men lead three oxen to my booth where they were slaughtered for the Althing banquet.

Tongue-Odd and Steinar went to their own, booth. Odd spoke to Steiner.

“Now that you have handed, to your father, the issue of your suit I declare myself free of debt to you. For it was agreed between us that I should help you in carrying through your suit. I am free of whatever may be the terms adjudged you by Egil.”

Steinar said that Odd had helped him well and manfully, and their friendship should be closer than before. “I pronounce you,” he said, “free of debt to me in regard of this matter.”

In the evening the judges went out; but nothing happened that needs to be told.
