THE GARDEN WALLS.





(Patchwork Puzzles)

erected four cottages, as shown in the illustration. The field is
surrounded by a brick wall, and the owner undertook to put up three

each other, but the four tenants insist that there shall be no

ground, and precisely the same length of wall.
Of course, each garden must be entirely enclosed by its walls, and it
must be possible to prove that each garden has exactly the same length
of wall. If the puzzle is properly solved no figures are necessary.
