Hump Day Hook

Another Wednesday, and another Hump Day Hook. I'm still working on Finding Rupert as my main WiP, and Rupert thinks he's made an interesting discovery in his namesake's Civil War letters to a previous duke:

The modern Rupert made a series of hasty notes on the inside back-cover of his sketchbook. He had already considered making a trip to the sites of Ashopton Magna and Nether Ashop Farm, but now he had a third place to consider. Derwentdale Hall sounded as if it could have been a suitable place for Lord Rupert to hide treasures, then some might have been overlooked in the course of his later adventures and left there after the Restoration. If the house had been abandoned as seemed likely, given that it was already dilapidated in the 17th Century, then artworks stored there were unlikely to have survived. Gold, on the other hand, could lie hidden for years. Such treasures, if not of sentimental value, could always be sold and the money used to buy back more of the lost Peveril paintings.
