Probably not quite enough to compete with a live Norwegian, I don't suppose, butI find it easy to replace 'unsubstantiated' with unborn.

Captain Ness arrested Peter Dahl, who worked at Hansen's mill in Nord, on

Mysterious word is "usobte", which might be "udøbte", unbaptised.  If the
original is in fractur and not latin font, the letters can be confusing.
