Edward arrived to find a stubborn wood-burner with unusual configuration that thwarted all attempts to gain access to the chimney. Not one to accept defeat and reluctant to resort to brute force; he coaxed and cajoled, phoned a friend, consulted the internet, coaxed and cajoled some more - and near-exhausted, disemboweled the beast.
