All Holmes is Good Holmes.
I was at an event last night in Beverly Hills at a private residence — our host had an amazing collection of historical autographs framed and hung on the walls throughout the home.  Just outside one of the bathrooms, in between some amazing autographed material from the likes of Amelia Earhart, Walt Disney and George Bernard Shaw, I came upon this: a handwritten note from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, dated 29 March 1910 and politely declining an invitation from the Lord Mayor of London (and “Lady Mayoress”) to a Festival Dinner.  (I politely suppressed a shriek…)  Sent from Windlesham Manor in Sussex, where he lived/worked for many years - which is now a care home for the elderly (www.windlesham-manor.co.uk).
