SUNDAY, July 17th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street!
TEA TIME at Baker Street - continues at Tea Time's summer digs at the University of Washington in SL. HIS LAST BOW: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmescontinues today with "The Adventure of the Red Circle."
Mrs. Warren, a landlady, comes to 221B Baker Street with some questions about
her lodger. A youngish, heavily bearded man, who spoke good but accented
English came to her and offered double her usual rent on the condition that he
get the room on his own terms. He went out the first night that he was there,
and came back after midnight when the rest of the household had gone to bed.
Since then, neither Mrs. Warren, her husband, nor their servant girl have seen
him. The lodger insisted on having the Daily Gazette every morning, and
sometimes requested other things. All requests were printed on a slip of paper
left on a chair outside the room where meals were also left.
Is it just eccentricity?
Or is there a real mystery - a danger lurking beyond that closed door?
