Dr. Conan Doyle's Latest Case (9 january 1897)

Sir, — I note the various concessions which have to be made to Mr. Beerbohm in order to save the situation. If his conscience will pass them I will do the same. And I especially applaud his excellent contention that because George was at one time of his life a Regent, it is permissible to describe him at all times as the Regent. I would suggest that the same argument would justify us in describing any historical character as "The Baby" — which would simplify matters very much.

Here's "good hunting" for the New Year to Mr. Max Beerbohm.

Yours faithfully,

A. CONAN DOYLE

Greyswood Beeches, Haslernere, 4 Jan., 1897
