In the illustration we have a sketch of Sir Edwyn de Tudor going to rescue his love, who was held a captive by a neighbouring wicked baron.

Sir Edwyn calculated that if he rode at fifteen miles an hour he would arrive at the castle an hour too soon, while if he rode at ten miles an hour he would get there just an hour too late.

Now, it was of the first importance that he should arrive at the exact time appointed, in order that the rescue that he had planned should be a success, and the time of the tryst was five o'clock, when the captive would be taking afternoon tea.

The puzzle is to discover exactly how far Sir Edwyn de Tudor had to ride.
