Description: 

Not far from Parker's and the jewelry store in Boston is the hardware store where Quentin goes to buy something heavy enough to make sure he drowns when he jumps into the river. Because the ten-pound "tailor's goose" is too big, he buys "two six-pound little ones" instead (85). A tailor's goose is a type of flat iron; the name derives from the curve of its handle.
