Letter to Mr. Stapleton (21 march 1904)
This letter was dictated by Arthur Conan Doyle on 21 march 1904 from Undershaw, Hindhead, Haslemere, and sent to A. Stapleton from Nottingham.
Stapleton was the name of many characters in his writings:
- in The Crime of the Brigadier (1899)
- in The Croxley Master (1899)
- in The Hound of the Baskervilles (1901)
It was entirely a chance that I hit upon your surname for characters in my writing.
Arthur Conan Doyle
