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 3
Hello Billy, I hope you and the family are well? I’ve lost Holmes again—I don’t suppose you have seen him since Friday? I put him into a taxi that afternoon at Kew, having a punt to dispose of (long story) and expected him to return to Sussex. However, I have just learned that Mrs Hudson has not seen him. Ring me at Mycroft’s old number if you have news.
P.S. The last time I looked in, your namesake grandfather seemed much better. We had a long chat about the Robert Goodman case—one which no doubt you have heard about in endless detail, due to its repercussions. You may even know why I chose this card.
