“I hear of Sherlock everywhere since you became his chronicler.” Words spoken by Sherlock Holmes’s older brother.

We, along with Dr. Watson, meet Mycroft Holmes for the first time in “The Greek Interpreter” which is the story for discussion for the meeting on February 3rd.  This story first appeared in the Strand Magazine in September 1893.


We, along with Dr. Watson, also learn that the grandmother of Sherlock Holmes was the sister of the French artist Vernet.


Holmes states: “Art in the blood is liable to take the strangest form.”

Shall we see you on Tuesday, February 3 for our next regular meeting?

Hampton Place, 7:00pm.
