"It would appear that Mr. James finally got his pen, only to give it away again."
- It came very well wrapped in saran wrap.
- It is actually a penknife, which is covered in some sort of sticky reddish-brown substance.
- Is it blood?
- Is it iodine?
- Is it wood stain?
- JWJ said he wished he had a pen in his first letter. It seems he finally obtained one.
- How did he receive it, and a penknife at that?
- What did he do with it? Who did he hurt?
- Why did he send it to us?
"An interesting letter, to be certain. He refers to some sort of obelisk, though which isn't clear. His O's and L's seem a bit odd in this letter. Perhaps something is wrong with the typewriter."
- In this letter, JWJ speaks of binary code. There is a binary code hidden within the letter. When solved, it reveals the message: "I got M".
- Who or what could M be?
- Could it be Madson?

- It towered over the lands.
- The ill omen was that of Paul Redfern crashing his plane nearby.
