TWENTY WEEKS OF BUZZ — Week 5

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 5

(On stationery with the heading: WILLIAM MUDD INVESTIGATIONS)

5 May (though only just)

Dear Miss R,

Sorry, haven’t seen Mr Holmes since Easter.  Neither has Granddad.  If you wish me to stir up an enquiry first thing in the morning, just say the word.

                                                                                                Billy (III)

PS. The wife sends her regards and says that you are to come to dinner soon, now that Billy-the-Fourth is now quite house-trained, or enough that there will be no more accidents onto visiting laps.

P.P.S. Were you aware that The Cracker is in Town?

Speak Your Mind
