From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

Fictional case.


In the Sherlock Holmes stories

Untold Story

  • Dr. Watson mentioned that, during their partnership, Holmes and he investigated the case of the papers of ex-President Murillo. (NORW, 13)


Our months of partnership had not been so uneventful as he had stated, for I find, on looking over my notes, that this period includes the case of the papers of ex-President Murillo, and also the shocking affair of the Dutch steamship Friesland, which so nearly cost us both our lives. His cold and proud nature was always averse, however, to anything in the shape of public applause, and he bound me in the most stringent terms to say no further word of himself, his methods, or his successes a prohibition which, as I have explained, has only now been removed. - Dr. Watson
