|The most noticeable feature of this cup
is the clear evidence given that the chief
interests of the consultant are bound up in
some man in India. That there is delay in
receiving important news from him is shown
by the symbol of the pigeon on the stone
immediately beneath the handle. But that
most favorable news may be expected later is
certain, for the figure of a man upon an
elephant with a pineapple beyond gives proof
of this. The natives with the large "P" in
conjunction show that the Punjaub is
indicated, and this is further emphasized by
the sign-post which points towards these
symbols. The child's toys show the
consultant's association and happiness with
children. The figure of the woman seated on
the edge of a rock with its curious peak
behind her, and the seagull below, suggest
that storms at sea will cause distress to
some woman known to the consultant. The
small figure "11," close to this symbol,
points out that it is likely to be eleven
days before there is hope of the anxiety

This cup shows that a
variety of events may be expected, with a
fair proportion of pleasure and success to
be anticipated from them.
The finger beyond the handle pointing to the
ark indicates that in all trials the
consultant will find a refuge. The hanging
lamp is also a guarantee of coming success,
and prosperous undertakings, in some new
plan which is under consideration.
The clouds, the symbol of the goat beyond
which is facing into the open gateway,
signify that an advantageous opportunity, to
which a certain amount of risk is attached,
awaits the consultant; the prominent
figurehead upon the stone pillar gives
assurance that all will turn out well, and
that there is no need for hesitation in
embarking upon this new opportunity; that it
will necessitate a removal is shown by the
buildings beyond. The quill pen and dots
point to the fact that some legal business
will be transacted over money affairs.
The dove-cot in the centre, with the form of
a widow with dots around, signifies that a
benefit to the home may be expected in the
future, through a widow. The clergyman in
conjunction, holding a paper, shows that the
benefit will probably come about through a
reconciliation. The bank of clouds behind
the ferry boat shows that some trouble, to
be expected in the future, will be lightened
by the help of good friends. Whilst the bird
stationary upon the piece of wood, at some
distance from the consultant, and in
conjunction with the letter "L," means
uncertainty as to some desired information,
which should come from someone whose name
begins with "L."
