There was a washerwoman in Shrule long ago named Mrs Eagleton. She used to wash for all the rich people of the town. She used to go down to the river with a big basket of clothes upon her head three times a week. Her husbands name was Ned Eagleton. The woman used to beat the soap out of the clothes with a beatle. She never wore any shoes. She lived where the Cramptons live now but the house was not as big. Her husband made a living by selling apples. They had two sons and one daughter. The whole family lived in Brackloon once.
