... There was a great famine in Greenland; those who had been to the fishing had but small takes, and some had not returned at all.  There was a woman in the district named Thorbjörg, who was a spae-wife, and was called the Little Witch.  She had had nine sisters, all of them witches, but she was the only one alive then.  It was her custom in the winter-time to go to entertainments, and men invited her to visit them, especially such as were curious to know their fortunes or how the season would turn out... (Scandinavian Folk-lore, Craigie, 1896)
