      My friend:
      My attitude about Doyle's relationship with Sherlock Holmes is pretty much explained by what I wrote in my article, "Doyle and the Illusion of Holmes."  I believe that article may appear in the next issue of the newsletter or I can supply copies upon request.

      Hi Philip,

      My PERSONAL opinion
      is that the fault lies with
      Doyle, who seldom paid
      much attention to dates

      Remember that discussion we had about Doyle's methods? I think Doyle was so keen on the methods of deduction that he couldn't care two hoots for dates. Of course, he would have had no idea that decades after he wrote a line like "...beaten four times..." people would be analysing it! :-)
