  1. Rich – Interesting to have a look at ACD’s actual responses to this. It’s nice actually to see the human side of authors.

  2. Moira says:

    Very entertaining

  3. Great stuff Rich – I made it to the British Library the other day and got to see his original MS for one of the Holmes stories (The Adventure of the Retired Colourman) in his ultra neat handwriting, which was a real treat.

  4. Judy Buck-Glenn, Philadelphia, PA, USA says:

    I didn’t think he sounded crabby. I thought he sounded detachedly amused, even slightly satiric.
