hearsay It is said that a barrel of beer got broken in the yard, and a duck drunk up and passed out. It was taken for a dead duck and plucked by the landlady, but revived before it could be put in the pot. It waddled off quacking drunkenly. The landlady knitted a wooly coat for the poor naked bird.
