    The Landlord's Tale is Longfellow's account of Paul Revere's midnight ride. I dont believe the sample estimation of Cleveland and Chicago is enough to rule out the question of whether Preiss had the intent to apply literary clues to a specific purpose. I dont think his craft was "cheap" or applied with no panache of the imagination.

    My observation of most people's efforts is theres too much dependence on the visual examination and not enough delving into the verse and how the literary nuance can be put into directional/orrientational instructions in the right setting. The iron gate of the Somerset and the fence enclosed section of Charlesgate is such a setting.

    I'm all for finding evidence of change or removed historic markers, but only in cases where theres the suggestion that such evidence is to be expected. A box is drawn in the painting, so looking for a box near the 2-circles is worth looking into, but I dont see its needed given the assemblance of enough clues to suggest a dig spot inside the fenced area as I've proposed. At this point I'm prepared to wire someone in Boston up to $2,000 to exercise the means necessary to GPR or dig that spot.

    Thank you for the link. I would still like a representative, someone wbo understands the objective to oversee the GPR specialist.

    I guess all you would need to do is convince somebody that your theory is credible.

    That reminds me of the time I hired a band to play a wedding. I asked the manager of an Irish rock band a year in advance so they had ample time to plan, but he flat out said "we dont do weddings". A year later, they played the gig. I dont know whether it was because I'm just that cool of a guy or if it was that they liked getting paid well.

    Its pointless to convince someone of my theory. You say a reverse dollar sign is a stretch as a symbol for "free". Shrug. You say the 2-circle area is where you think the puzzle leads to the casque. I think its a great idea to look at the surroundings, see the green light tower as it interposes the view of the S-S on the Somerset gate. Theres a nice drawing of the Tax Burden fairy in the book displaying a large bag of money, a large $ symbol with an interposing strap over it. I think its a really good hint/confirmation for how Boston works, not to mention the subject matter of imperial tax burdens as they apply to those historic days.
