My dear Sir,

Many thanks for your note. You wish me to extend my good opinion to the others but the one thing which is clear in my mind is that the packet had been tampered with. Someone must have done this. You cannot really think that it was Hewat McKenzie. Therefore it seems to come down to the experimenters. But I assure you that if you can give me an alternative explanation I should eagerly examine it with the utmost good will for I have no wish to think evil of any man. But there is the fact to be surmounted.

With best wishes for your holiday. I am off to the New Forest myself.

Yours sincerely.

A. Conan Doyle
