Three in Norway by Two of Them   By:

Book cover

First Page:

[Transcriber's Note:

This e text comes in two forms: Unicode (UTF 8) and Latin 1. Use the one that works best on your text reader.

If "oe" (only in English words) displays as a single character, and apostrophes and quotation marks are "curly" or angled, you have the UTF 8 version (best). If any part of this paragraph displays as garbage, try changing your text reader's "character set" or "file encoding". If that doesn't work, proceed to: In the Latin 1 version, "oe" is two letters, but Norwegian words like "öl" have accents and "æ" is a single letter. Apostrophes and quotation marks will be straight ("typewriter" form).

A handful of words were printed with unusual diacritics (macron, breve). These are individually explained at the end of the e text.

To reduce visual clutter, italic markings have been omitted from currency notations such as "1s. 2d." Illustration captions have been supplied from the List of Illustrations; they were not used in the printed book except for the full page plates. The title page illustration is "The Colony at Breakfast in Memurudalen", repeated later in the book.

Unless otherwise noted, all Norwegian names and words including those that are obviously wrong were printed as shown. For details, see the end of the e text after the list of typographical errors.]

NORWAY

' A man is at all times entitled, or even called upon by occasion, to speak, and write, and in all fit ways utter, what he has himself gone through, and known, and got the mastery of; and in truth, at bottom, there is nothing else that any man has a right to write of. For the rest, one principle, I think, in whatever farther you write, may be enough to guide you: that of standing rigorously by the fact, however naked it look. Fact is eternal; all fiction is very transitory in comparison. All men are interested in any man if he will speak the facts of his life for them; his authentic experience, which corresponds, as face with face, to that of all other sons of Adam. '
