Notes, topics or text 

Schieldrop, a professor of applied mathematics at Oslo, would like to see BR about a peace plan. He recounts several stories about the Trondheim incident in 1948. He introduced BR to the Anglo-Norse Society before the war.

"I'm the man who stole a pipe (your only one at that moment) from you at Britannia Hotel in Trondheim. I was also one of the crowd that took care of you when you entered the hotel dripping wet after your morning bath in the Trondheim fiord. I am further the one whom you took into your confidence (at 1 o'clock that night) as to the profound parting utterance to be expected from philosophers (great philosophers, that is) face to face with death in cold Norwegian waters. Adding that I introduced you when you gave a lecture to the Anglo-Norse Society in Oslo before the war and that I hold a world record: having retold more often than anybody else your perfect A1 story "Remember you are an Equdorian [sic]" — I can't find more in order to impress you."
