        Sherlockians reading about Joseph Stangerson might like to know that Holmes
        wrote 'A Study In Scarlet' without at that time ever having visited America
        - he read up on America in the Encyclopaedia Britannica and from newspaper
        articles. The name 'Stangerson' seems to have been an adaptation from the
        real-life case of the disappearance of a German baker named Urban Napoleon
        Stanger on 12 November 1881 in the East End of London.
