61. Washed and refectedAttending a meeting (in Nordic a meeting is called a Thing, the Icelandic parliament is called the Althing) of local men, attire is of little importance, it is a healthy body and mind that matter.
let a man ride to the Thing,
although his garments be not too good;
of his shoes and breeches
let no one be ashamed,
nor of his horse,
although he have not a good one.
