Nor was eadmund displeased with the freedom, but at that last saying he laughed outright.
Now, have you noted any envy at the favour in which he is held by eadmund?
So I went back and told eadmund, knowing full well what his answer would be.
In 944, however, eadmund subdued all Northumbria, and expelled its Danish kings.
So Lodbrok came, and he and the king looked long at one another before eadmund spoke.
Then eadmund rose up from his place, and went towards the king.
It was in my mind to see eadmund and leave him at once, before Streone knew that any man had come into the town, if I could.
As we went towards the horses, I told him, therefore, of what had been said of eadmund and Cnut.
And this I told to eadmund and the earl, who could not but listen to me.
"I cannot tell how he has heard that," eadmund said, and he looked puzzled.
