    I do see a green square or circle inside the black box but for the life of me cant see any letters. A T G R A N??? they must be really small letters eh? Time to upgrade my magnifying glass! My tool kit just gets larger and larger.

    I've held both my books (hardback and paperback) up to the light, scanned the page in Photoshop, and used a magnifying glass... I see no "M E" in the knothole. Only a differently shaded square is visible. I think we're looking too hard at this one.

    I have looked with magnifying glass, filters, in mirrors, etc. and still cannot make out what letter there is in the knothole on p. 16, can anyone help with this?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, no FIND PAIR, cause I missed the W - FIND WRAP/WARP comes closer. Should think first before writing.

    Could you elaborate about how you reached this decision? I'm not discounting it, I'm more interested in the process used to get there.
    Thanks.

    Default Black Squares in 5X5 grid

    If you fill the grid with the alphabet (exclude Q)

    1 2 3 4 5
    1 A B C D E
    2 F G H I J
    3 K L M N O
    4 P R S T U
    5 V W X Y Z

    The black squares are . . A B D I J P R S

    As a cryptogram @ www.ics.uci.edu/~eppstein/cryptogram/ ...

    The letters become . . C H I L D R E N

    I suspect the black squares have some significance . . . but not yet sure what ? ? ?

    ABDIJPRS could be a substitution cryptogram for ANY eight letter word with no repeated letters.

    I agree that it could give you any eight letter word with no repeated letters, but Kentucky has two "k". I just checked and I haven't been able to find any state that would work. Sorry!
