A CALL FOR SIGNATURES, ESPECIALLY FROM AMERICAN SHERLOCK HOLMES FANS!
The Undershaw Preservation Trust is the organization whose goal is to save Undershaw, the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Undershaw is where Conan Doyle wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Return of Sherlock Holmes. You may have read the article about Undershaw on The Baker Street Blog (http://www.bakerstreetblog.com/2011/03/effort-to-preserve-it-iden.html), in the Scottish Rite Journal, in Irene’s Cabinet, or even on our own podcast.
The Undershaw Preservation Trust has an urgent and immediate need for signatures of American Sherlockians who would like to show their support of Undershaw on an online petition. This petition will serve to show that interest in, and support for, Undershaw crosses The Pond and is more than just a local concern.
We need these signatures no later than Friday, September 16, 2011. We are encouraging everyone to leave positive and supportive comments on the petition, as well as their signature. (By signing one’s name to the petition one is only showing support. No commitments are required and no information will be used without consent.)
Would you please consider signing the petition yourself, and promoting it among your Sherlockian friends and acquaintances? Those of you who head up a Sherlockian group might consider sending a special email to your members, or mentioning at a meeting prior to September 16. Please make it understood that we need the petition signed by September 16.
