“The day before last, we had a spill in our main laboratory. A c-c-case of avoidable negligence I’m afraid. Dr. Bolton will be sorely missed, but perhaps it’s better it happened in the laboratory. Anyway, we need our lab cleaned up. The reward is 750 gold. We can arrange to pay a fr-fr-fraction of it up front, of course. Shouldn’t like you to be ill-equipped.”
