FIG.5

A letter is approaching the consultant containing a considerable sum of money, as it is surrounded by dots.  The future, shown by the bottom of the cup, is not clear, and betokens adversities; but the presence of the hammer there denotes triumph over these, a sign confirmed by the hat on the side.  The consultant will be annoyed by somebody whose name begins with ‘J,’ and assisted by one bearing the initial ‘Y.’

[Illustration 5]

INTERPRETATION

FIG. 6

A letter containing good news, shown by bird flying and the triangle, may be expected immediately.  If from a lover it shows that he is constant and prosperous, owing to the anchor on the side.  The large tree on the side indicates happiness and prosperity.  A letter will be received from someone whose initial is ‘L.’  In the bottom of the cup there are signs of minor vexations or delays in connection with someone whose name begins with ‘C.’

[Illustration 6]

INTERPRETATION

FIG. 7

The two horse-shoes indicate a lucky journey to some large residence in a north-easterly direction, the tree surmounting which denotes that happiness and fortune will be found there and that (as it is surrounded by dots) it is situated in the country.  The sitting hen in the bottom of the cup, surmounted by a triangle (to see which properly the illustration must be turned round) is indicative of increased wealth by an unexpected legacy.  A letter from someone whose name begins with ‘T’ will contain a remittance of money, but it may not arrive for some little time.

[Illustration 7]

FIG.7

Principal Symbols:—­

Large horse-shoe, edge of bottom, in conjunction with smaller horse-shoe.  Line of dots leading E.N.E. to Large building surmounted by Tree, overlapping rim.  Flowers.  Small triangles.  Initial ‘T’ with letter and money signs.
