Things That Fall From Books #15: A Clue!


There seems to be a theme developing this week on Front Free Endpaper: scraps of paper! Nonetheless, I intrigued and delighted by this little scrap that fell from a copy of Stevenson's Treasure Island. At first I assumed it was a child's copy of something that appears in the book itself but rack my brains as I might, I can't remember any such note appearing: so I searched an online text file of the book for any of these phrases and can't find them. I then put searched more widely using Google and again a blank. It is written on the back of a piece of paper torn from a letter which, fortunately, retains the date, 1923. A delightful clue perhaps to a game long finished.
