As I was going to St. Ives,


As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

    1. The person himself.
    The people he met are not going to St. Ives.
    The person just met them on the way.
