SUNDAY, July 31st 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 Dying Detective."
Dr Watson is called to tend Holmes, who is apparently dying of a rare disease contracted while he was on a case. Watson was shocked, having heard about his friend’s illness. Mrs. Hudson says that Holmes has neither eaten nor drunk anything in three days.
Holmes instructs Watson not to come near him, because the illness is highly infectious. Although Watson wishes to examine Holmes himself or send for a specialist, Holmes demands that Watson wait several hours before seeking help. So, Watson is forced to wait, in extreme worry as Holmes mutters nonsense. What can Watson do to help his good friend, and how did Sherlock Holmes come to this tragic lass?
Mrs. Hudson is serving chicken soup and tea, with some healthful fruit on the side to help Holmes in his swift recovery.
