This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle in august 1893 to Ruby Paulson, Mount Sorrel, Loughborough.


My Dear Ruby

Sherlock has become very lazy and I am very stupid so that I am afraid there will not be very many more stories about the strange things that he has done. But both he and I are very pleased when we hear that we have given pleasure to nice little girls. I showed him your letter and he said that your signature showed him that your father was about 45 years of age, that your hair was brown, and that you were a clever little girl with a turn for everything except mathematics. That was what he said, but he smokes too much and has been getting quite muddled lately.

Your affectionate friend

A. Conan Doyle
