As the Vultures Gather...

from Dr J Watson to Sherlock Holmes Esq:

(delivered by hand by Ex-Major Tom, formerly of Bowie Street Barracks)

Holmes,

Those Flocking Seagulls...

from Dr J Watson to Sherlock Holmes Esq:

From the Diary of Dr John Watson.

from Dr J Watson to Sherlock Holmes Esq:

From the Diary of Dr John Watson.

Still in the Belly of the Beast...

from Dr J Watson to Sherlock Holmes Esq:

From the diary of Doctor Watson

Day 2, Loch Ness (continued)

I have to say I was more than a little perturbed at my companion’s sudden departure, but reading his note now (in the general tranquillity of this railway carriage), I can see that Holmes was merely thinking of me and my likely reaction to the contents of his stomach erupting in the confined space we then occupied. 647 more words
