In the spring of 1992, Russell and Holmes fled their Sussex home pursued by American Sherlockians. After May Morning in Oxford, they punted downstream and became separated. During the Twenty Weeks of Buzz, we will follow what happened to them next.
A CASE IN CORRESPONDENCE – Part 1
3 May 1992
Holmes—I trust you reached home without difficulty, following my crass abandonment of you on the banks of the Thames. As I expected, I had no problem creating the façade of aged and infirm old woman—one of my rescuers even insisted on pressing a £5 note into the cabbie’s hand.
I will be here at the Vicissitude for two or three days, completing that research the Americans interrupted. If you wish anything from Town, a note will reach me in the usual way.
PS. I discovered a box of ancient postal cards behind the shot-gun shells in the bolt-hole, which I am appropriating for the purpose. Do you never clear anything out?
