Samson - his eyes were put out because he followed them too often Kebriones - when killed, his eyes came out Polyphemus - was a cyclops and Odysseus put a stake through his eye Oedipus - gouged out his own eyes after his wife/mother killed herself
I'm not sure how this relates (or at all) to the letter jumble above the ad BUT I think it's too coincidental to be accidental.

I'm re-typing the actual Horse letter string here for others to easily cut/paste/manipulate:
I have noticed a few things that I feel are worth pointing out: 1) There are 62 letters in the string. 2) The two lines have different numbers of letters, which is unnecessary since there is a even number of letters total. 3) The first three letters actually make up a word (the). 4) The Horse ad directly below it does seem to be much more manufactured than the other ads in the issue, and in issues past. 5) The names of the Horses relate to each other in several ways (Missing eyes, mythological characters) 6) The date "February, 1884" seems to be printed differently than the rest of the ad.
None of this is really new information, but I figured I would try and gather all the information that I am currently looking at to try and crack it.
are names of people/creatures that lost their eye(s)
but I don't get what I was supposed to do with that. Should I have been looking at the curios (I joined late so don't have them and find it hard to inspect them from the pictures) with that information?
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
