Quandary Resolution 4517
onomastics, amerce, largesse, boustrophedon

The judge decided to amerce Samuel for being uppity, knowing full well that he was cash poor, but due to the largesse of a local Quaker woman, he was able to return to his small farm, where he continued his study of onomastics by copying names from his Bible and also practiced writing the letters of the alphabet; however, being both unschooled and creative, he wrote in a form of boustrophedon, right to left and left to right, in the same way that he plowed his fields.
