First of all I am convinced that "Pott Soap" was written by Hauptmann. It's what they obviously used to wash out their pots and pans. I highlighted this by my point about the "Camp Milk." It's this notion that "Pott Soap" isn't supposed to make any sense. "Camp Milk" and "Pott Soap" are both indicative of the language used for the items they had on their trip. They weren't staying in hotels, and they cooked outside over a campfire.

For me it is CRYSTAL clear that there is no way in HELL that its "Box" Soap. That is a "P" and absolutely meant to be. That is NOT an "x." Look at how BIG it is. He mispelled "Pot" and crossed both "t"s in the exact same way he did in "street" "Christ" "Pinehurst" etc. The only difference here is that there are two ts so he's overlapping.

It's no mystery.

          Okay great. In an attempt to neutralize what I've written you have me doing two things: Speculating and having an Ulterior Motive. Let's see how this shakes out. YOU WROTE: I believe what's happened... more

            Reflecting back to my original point about the cost of this entry, "Po-- Soap" in Hauptmann's memo book, and considering his exemplified letter "t" and "x" formations, I think I would have to agree... more
