Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2011
rundlet, hallows, alterity, weal
At college his abstinence and acute sense of alterity isolated him, but his saintly concern for the weal of the junior common room had moved him to order from the buttery a weekly rundlet of ale, for which welcome liquid provision, after his wholly unjustifiable rustication for 'gross and persistent insobriety', we hallowed the hallowed hallows (a sheaf of faded requisition slips) of the hallowed hallow (himself the departed saint) in a hallowed hallow (the dispiritingly empty cask).
