The cook returns with Physician Boosnave. They open the door a little and sidle into the room, closing the door behind them. You can hear the cook's voice, gentle and soothing.

Master Derdolcelme has been taken briefly ill by a bilious attack, but will be down shortly.

Dearch the library for items of obvious interest?
