Dear me what could it be... a letter in a box, built by someone and written by a man of no letter?
Well written and good riddle... I will give it some thought.
IS a good theory but I think it s simpler than that ... and if it holds no sin we can rule out a coffin, or curse!
however, other than the reference to termites, it does not say its a wooden box.... only that it was built.... or by who.
