“It was one Sunday evening early in September of the year 1903 that I received one of Holmes’ laconic messages: “Come at once if convenient – if inconvenient, come all the same.” – S.H.”

The story for discussion at the next regular meeting of the Stormy Petrels is “The Adventure of the Creeping Man”

Holmes says that this problem is a ‘tangled skein’ and he is looking for a loose end. For example: Why does Professor Presbury’s wolf-hound, Roy, endeavour to bite him? After all, Holmes states that “a dog reflects the family life”.

Camford – is it Cambridge or Oxford?
Why did Mrs. Bennett call her husband Jack, when his name is Trevor?
What role do langur monkeys play in this story?

For answers to these questions and more, please join the Stormy Petrels at the next meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 7th at 7:00 pm at the home of our Priory Schoolmaster, P. Wood.
