"The family party, with the exception of their cousin Ned, after a winter spent in Italy, return to England and cross the North Sea to Christiana. They go as far north in Norway as anybody can go, and then return after having done their best to discover their Viking ancestors among the fjords of Norway. From Christiana they go to Copenhagen, visits the haunts of Andersen and enjoy Denmark. They have now, after seeing Scandinavia, got at the earliest European life which was connected with America, and they return home, never again to set forth on their rambling journeys. This is the last of the Bodleys."
