SUNDAY, August 9th at 1:30 PM: TEA TIME at Baker Street!
Team Tea Time continues Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's collection of Sherlock Holmes Adventures - "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. TODAY: "The Adventure of the Naval Treaty"
Dr. Watson receives a letter, which he then refers to
Holmes, from an old schoolmate, now a Foreign Office employee from Woking who has had an important naval treaty stolen from
his office. It disappeared while Mr. Percy Phelps had stepped out of his office
momentarily late in the evening to see about some coffee that he had ordered.
His office has two entrances, each joined by a stairway to a single landing.
The commissionaire kept watch at the main entrance. There was no-one watching
at the side entrance. Phelps also knew that his fiancée's brother was in town
and that he might drop by. Phelps was alone in the office.
Phelps pulled the bell cord in his office to summon the
commissionaire, and to his surprise the commissionaire's wife came up instead.
He worked at copying the treaty that he had been given while he waited. At
last, he went to see the commissionaire when it had taken some time for the
coffee to arrive. He found him asleep with the kettle boiling furiously. He did
not need to wake him up, however, as just then, the bell linked to his office
rang. Realizing that someone was in his office with the treaty spread out on
his desk, Phelps rushed back up and found that the document had vanished, and
so had the thief!
