    This interpretation provided the basis for a verse reply from “Philo-Rhithmus” of Edinburgh

    Why the deuce do you give yourselves so much vexation,
    And puzzle your brains with a long calculation
    Of the number of cats, with their kittens and sacks,
    Which went to St Ives, on the old women’s backs,
    As you seem to suppose? — Don’t you see that the cunning
    Old Querist went only? — The rest were all coming.
    But grant the wives went too, — as sure’s they were married,
    Eight only could go, — for the rest were all carried.
