Stormy Petrels and all Sherlockians! We will begin our study sessions once more. Our last one was in June. Since then we have met up at a pub (Milltown Bar & Grill in August) and our very successful 35th anniversary celebration at the Johnston-Keddis Estate in South Surrey in September.

The October 4th meeting will take place at the Roedde House Museum, 1415 Barclay Street, Vancouver (in the heart of the West End).

The meeting will begin at 7:00, but if you are able to be there by 6:30, you will be treated to a tour of the Victorian mansion.

The adventure for discussion will be “The Greek Interpreter”. A story involving kidnapping, extortion and murder.

This adventure first appeared in September in 1893 in both the Strand Magazine and Harper’s Weekly, and gives us a peek into Holmes’s background, such as informing us that he has an older brother, he is descended from country squires and his grandmother was the sister of the French artist Vernet.

What did Mycroft do for a living? What is the Diogenes Club? What were Dr. Watson’s comments on Sherlock Holmes’s character? Did he play golf?
