TWENTY WEEKS OF BUZZ – Week 4

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.

The original documents will be posted each Friday on Laurie R. King’s blog Mutterings (http://www NULL.laurierking NULL.com/blogs).

A CASE IN CORRESPONDENCE – Part 4

5 May

Dear Mrs H,

(It is amusing how, even after having you as THE Mrs Hudson in our lives for more than a decade, there persists a moment of astonishment as my mind’s eye attempts to link your name with the face of your husband’s great-grandmother!)

I am glad to hear that the American invasion of Sussex has ceased—no doubt they are still quartering Oxford in hopes of finding our scent. If they reappear, do not hesitate to call on Patrick for assistance.

About Holmes, please don’t concern yourself, no doubt he thought of some urgent business in Town, I shall let you know when I find him.

– M.R.
