SUNDAY, March 10th @ 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street!

Caledonia continues with the second of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's short story collections about the adventures of his famous detective and the doings generated from Baker Street: "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes."  This week:  THE ADVENTURE OF THE RESIDENT PATIENT.

Doctor Percy Trevelyan brings Holmes an unusual problem. Having been a brilliant student but a poor man, Dr. Trevelyan has found himself a participant in an unusual business arrangement. A man named Blessington, claiming to have some money to invest, has set Dr. Trevelyan up in premises with a prestigious address and paid all his expenses. In return, he demands three-fourths of all the money that the doctor’s practice earns, which he collects every evening, going over the books thoroughly and leaving the doctor five shillings and threepence from the day’s takings. Blessington is himself infirm, it turns out, and likes this arrangement because he can always have a doctor nearby.

Everything has gone fairly well for the doctor since the arrangement began. Now, however, something has happened to Mr. Blessington. He has become excitable and agitated, this after he said that he had read about a burglary somewhere in the city.
