A Moment While I Puzzle

  • I’ve got a letter dated April 24, 1942 in an envelope postmarked April 27.
  • Then I have a letter dated April 25, 1942 in an envelope postmarked April 26.
  • Finally, I have an envelope postmarked April 25 with no letter.

Well, I suppose that Ruth could have put some letters back into the wrong envelopes after reading a few, especially if they arrived several at a time. I also suppose that Walt could have written some and mailed them out of order for some reason. What I usually do with such puzzles—if I notice them in advance—is to compare the letter contents to see if there are clues to the order.

Just give me a few minutes
