## AN EPISCOPAL VISITATION.

(

The Guarded Chessboard)

The white squares on the chessboard represent the parishes of a diocese.

Place the bishop on any square you like, and so contrive that (using the

ordinary bishop's move of chess) he shall visit every one of his

parishes in the fewest possible moves. Of course, all the parishes

passed through on any move are regarded as "visited." You can visit any

squares more than once, but you are not allowed to move twice between

the same two adjoining squares. What are the fewest possible moves? The

bishop need not end his visitation at the parish from which he first set

out.
