#1 Clue, Friday Dec. 10th :: Whether day or night, this box sees no light.This box sees no light because this box is inside of a box as it's disguise.
#2 Clue, Saturday Dec. 11th :: An agreement was made and each would have their way.Dr. A.J. Kilpatrick, Sr., one of Augusta’s first obstetricians, wanted to be a part of the excitement, but his wife was reluctant to leave their downtown home, a former Colonial inn known as the Mansion House. Dr. Kilpatrick’s negotiating skills must have equaled his clinical expertise, because he successfully brokered a deal with his wife. They would indeed move to Forrest Hills, and they would bring the Mansion House with them. The good doctor hired an architect, a contractor, and two construction crews to dismantle the structure – board by board, brick by brick – and reassemble it on Comfort Road.
#3 Clue, Sunday Dec. 12th :: Leaving behind a military man for the freedom from pain.This clue was in reference to the two street addresses that the Mansion House moved between.
