Thanks, madmouth--added to my "Measurements" list. :-)Here's the precise definition I found: a bale of wool weighing 2240 lb. (1016 kg) or 80 tods.
madmouth commented on the word sarpler
a large coarse bag, also a Scotch unit of measurement. It was upbraided to Demosthenes...that his Orations did smell like the sarpler or wrapper of a foul and filthy oil-vessel-Urquhart via Rabelaismadmouth's variant: "your MOM smells like the sarpler of a foul and filthy oil-vessel"
