While on my way to St. Ives,

I met a man with seven wives.

Each wife had seven sacks;

Each sack had seven cats;

Kits, cats, sacks, wives;

The person going to St. Ives must have met the other man with his seven wives and their pets  coming from the opposite direction.

Consequently, only the man named ME, was going to St. Ives.
