Puzzle #1: Going to St. Ives

By Muriel Bristol (Transcriber) | September 1, 2018

We begin with a traditional Cornish puzzle:

As I was going to St. Ives,

I met a man with seven wives,

Each wife had seven sacks,

Each sack had seven cats,

Each cat had seven kits:

Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,

How many were there going to St. Ives?
