20 How the “Mastiffs'" went to Iceland. it all cut and dry in his own mind, having quite settled with himself what the courtesies of life demanded from a pack of “Mastiffs” arriving suddenly in the capital of a new country. All presented themselves before the Majesty of the Civil Law. It was essential only that some few of the elders should recog- nise the dignity of the Established Church. But at the Bishop’s we became acquainted with Thora, the Bishop’s daughter. Thora, before we left, had become to all of us the heroine of Reykjavik. Even Wilson, the unhappy one, was softened altogether by the charm and wit of Thora, and became quite devoted and almost gay in her presence. Having thus performed our duties we were allowed to roam about the town, and as we had ladies with us we very soon found ourselves in the jewellers’ shops,—for Reykjavik has jewellers’ shops. Old silver ornaments, silvered belts and filigree work, all of which had probably come some years ago from Denmark, and some of which had possibly come from Birmingham, was there for sale,—and were sold. Each “Mastiff” wanted some token to take home to England, and the tokens were for the most part taken home in the shape of these ornaments. And we were frequent at the shop of a certain saddler who sold leather sachels and whips for riding. Every “Mastiff,” male and female, required a whip and a sachel,—for had it not been appointed for us that we were to ride up to the Geysers; and how could we ride unknown ponies unless armed with whips, and how could we endure to be separated from our baggage, as must be the case, unless provided with some means of carrying our most needed little treasures? We emptied the shop of whips and sachels, and left the saddler, I should hope, happy in his mind. Reykjavik, as Thorshavn, is a fishy town. Along the unoccupied parts of the street, or the shore, at every little bit of vantage ground which could be found vacant, there were fishes laid out to dry; and it seemed that every portion of the fish was preserved with care, including the bones and head and jaws. It is interesting to see how the wants of a people will accommodate themselves to the products which nature is able to give to them. Bread is very
