The “damsel in distress” calls upon Holmes to ask if he could shed any light as to the disappearance of her fiance, Mr. Hosmer Angel. There are no mincing of words as Holmes tells her to forget him.

How does our detective discover who it was that pulled the wool over Miss Mary Sutherland’s short-sighted, pince-nezed eyes?

Did her mother have a role in deceiving her daughter? How cruel!

Please join the Stormy Petrels of BC as they discuss “A Case of Identity” on Tuesday, Oct. 6th at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.

An e-mail invitation will be sent by Sheldon by the day of the meeting.

BONUS QUESTIONS: (1) In the first paragraph there is a line which reminds one of a story by one of ACD’s good friends. Can you name the story (also made into a play) and can you name his friend who wrote the story?

(2) What machine did Holmes use to trace Windibank’s letters?

Members attending the meeting will have their names on slips of paper, placed into a bag. Fran will then draw names until the question is answered correctly.

If you have any question or want more info, please contact Fran at:
