The next year he proceeded to Iceland, and in the year following, 1015, purchased the Glaumboe estate, where he resided during the remainder of hie life. Snorre, his American-born son, also dwelled and ended his days there.

Smith, of Boston, has written an account of a remarkable roughstone cemetery, discovered about fifty years ago in Rainsford island, in the bay of Boston, which c...
