In the course of their demon-hunting activites, the members of the Hambridge & Fivehead Cryptozoological Society were forced to burn down the church of Broughton-upon-Sea, as well as its assembled congregation, to prevent the devilish slugs in the congregation's head from propagating evil. Actively hunting down would-be escapees, a task that involved, among other things, shooting choirboys in the back of the head as they were running away, was a duty that the members of the Society were also forced to take upon themselves. Shortly afterwards their (hasty) departure from Broughton-upon-Sea, the following exchange took place.
The following abbreviations have been used, in order of appearance:
|AGPSIV||Dr A Gilmore Pitcairn-Strangechilde IV||Swiss doctor, very tall, demon in his head probably gone by now.|

|CEF||Charles E Flitworth||Furtive schoolteacher, often frightened, throws explosives.|
