They divided the island into four, to wit, a folk sedate, fair-grey in (the first) place in it. royal lords in the second place: champions in the third place: servants in the fourth place20. Beautiful and bright were they all. Play without resting had they. A certain one of the crew21 went to ask tidings of them. Black was he and hideous beside the bright folk to whom he came. He began at once to play and laugh, so that he was as gay and bright as they themselves, and he remained with them in the island, and thereat the Húi Corra were mournful. Then they sail on22.
