My dear Smith

I got the Sherlock Holmes suggestion but not the other one. I fear I can't make anything of either of them. It's too delicate and getting too near to self advertisement. I'm glad to understand that the serial has not disappointed you. Home today.

Yours very sincerely,

A Conan Doyle.
