Drugget J. Earbrew was an exceptional milliner’s apprentice. Rather he was the one that did all the lumbersome work hefting a much too overfilled pack on his back full of the businesses implements, wares and personal supplies of his trade mentor, Samuel Puddle, ( who this past summer you may have remember meeting). Mr. Earbrew was the one who took on mending work and securing stays in boarding homes and inns when coinage was to be had. Why didn’t Mr. Earbrew take authority of the outworn pair’s enterprise or move out on his own? This dear reader is unknown, as Mr. Earbrew is of the quiet sort and had affection and a feeling of duty for his peevish employer and friend.
