Excerpt: THE MAN whose story is here to be told was the wealthiest and most influential person in his parish; his name was Thord Overaas. He appeared in the priest?s study one day, tall and earnest. ?I have gotten a son,? said he, ?and I wish to present him for baptism.? ?What shall his name be?? ?Finn, after my father.? ?And the sponsors?? They were mentioned, and proved to be the best men and women of Thord?s relations in the parish. ?Is there anything else?? inquired the priest, and looked up. The peasant hesitated a little. ?I should like very much to have him baptized by himself,? said he finally. ?That is to say on a week day?? ?Next Saturday, at twelve o?clock noon.? ?Is there anything else?? inquired the priest. ?There is nothing else;? and the peasant twirled his cap, as though he were about to go. Then the priest arose. ?There is yet this, however,? said he, and walking toward Thord, he took him by the hand and looked gravely into his eyes: ?God grant that the child may become a blessing to you!?
