I am still uncertain which surprised me more, the telegram calling my attention to the advertisement, or the advertisement itself. The telegram is before me as I write. It would appear to have been handed in at Vere Street at eight o'clock in the morning of May 11, 1897, and received before half-past at Holloway B.O.

My fruit bowl is almost completely filled with raffle tickets of Littens who participated in the #MrBook1inaMillion #LitsyPartyOfOne #24B4Monday #Readathon! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Keep your eyes on the prize, and later tonight I‘ll be revealing the two winners, as the drawing will be witnessed by the legendary couple of @Rachel.Rencher & @Lucas.Rencher !

Thank you again to the incredible co-hosts who helped make the event so much more awesome! 🤗

Mehso-so

Well that was a rum little thing. Holmes and Watson as thieves written by Conan Doyle's brother-in-law. Only they're not terribly good. Raffles is far from perfect. He's a bit of a lunatic. Bunny contributes almost nothing. It's all a bit of a mess.

And yet... the stories contain the bare-bones tropes if every heist movie and anti-hero thief story ever told.
