Story Summary:

I have labored to include a myriad of underutilized and moribund vernacular for this, Classicblack's "Vocabulary Challenge".  My only hope is that this piece will moreso add than detract from  the ecclectic manifest that is my author's page and not act as a deterrent to my other works, which, though they contain their own idiosyncracies, are not meant to be as tedious or saturnine as this.

It may help to approach this story in the same manner as one might when reading Lewis Carrol's "Jabberwocky".  If you don't recognize a word, you may construe its meaning from the context.  Be advised that even the mighty Word does not acknowledge some of the outdated syntax, and with that said, one may speculate to their heart's content about the true spelling of the contents within.

As always, I must bow to the ineffable skill of my tireless beta, ladybirdflying, who keeps my prose clean, my theme focused, and my disobedient muse on a tight leash.

The plot is slow.  There are no 'ships.  The characters are stiff upper-lipped old men.
