“One possible loose end lies in the question…”

Hello Watsonians!

Our loose end at the moment is the final warm-up question for the 4th JHWS Treasure Hunt that will begin in just a few weeks on August 1.  As I’ve mentioned before, we are looking at the mixture of imagination and reality for this year’s hunt.  Warm up question one concerned a real date, warm up question two concerned a mixture of Canonical facts, and now we are at warm up question three.  It is time to use your imagination to solve a question.  And here we go:

If one were to imagine all the ages aligning, these two might have benefited from the unexpected charity of the professional criminal. Which two? Which criminal? What charity?

It this question appeared on the actual hunt, it would be worth four points–maybe just enough for you to pass the other competitors in the totals.  This one is good practice and hopefully fun.   I look forward to your answers.
