"Mr. Willoughsby mentioned that someone might be stopping in here for a drink. I can respect someone who's got the stones to make a trip over to the Boil. Mr. Willoughsby told you of his plans? He's a little more than concerned that the element here in the Boil will spill over into the better parts of Tarant. And, of course, he just can't have that happen."
