Jack was pleased to know this piece of information. He could now plan his get away more precisely.
On the night in the planned period they had decided to do their dastardly deed jack was as fit as a flea. Nimble and quick he jumped over the candlestick and wall as if they were one. For years he regretted that move as the pair of sticks was worth far more than just one alone.

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Jack jumped over the candle stick.
Both knew they were in for the high jump.
