Do you know the rat-catcher at all?
Oh yes. Rumors to the contrary, he’s quite a clean fellow. He was a customer here every so often.
Have you seen him recently?
No. I think he retired.
And what about the new rat-catcher, Tolsa Fernel?
Oh, her. She settled in Lower Wyk and never comes here. They say she has a large luxurious marble bath pool in her house all to herself, so she might not need to.
