OK... so I can see your inclination to think that "DRUGGET" says "drugs" since Josie was sick... but that last letter looks like her "t" with the little squiggle on top. What about "drugget" which wiki says is a coarse woolen fabric?

I agree with Bryan on "Drugget", though I wonder what it could have been used for? Cheap thin fabric would have been good for covering plantbeds, but why would Miss Smith be sending it?
