'This liquid smells terrible! But...it does smell like the liquid I found on the shards of the gourd I found. This is the proof I need to clear my name!
'Here, take one of the skins to Captain Trotter and show it to him. Tell him that this is what caused me to fall asleep. I would do it myself, but the guards won't let me near him.
'Please hurry, my name must be cleared!'
Talbot told you that the vile liquid you found on the Orc in Nan Wathren was similar to the shattered one he found at his feet. He believes this is the proof he needs to clear his name
Captain Trotter can be found in Trestlebridge.
Talbot Hinton asked you to bring the gourd you found to Captain Trotter as evidence to clear his name. He cannot do this himself, since the town-guard will not let him approach the captain.
