The Case of the Peculiar Persecution of John Vincent Harden

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

Fictional case.


In the Sherlock Holmes stories

Untold Story


On referring to my note-book for the year 1895, I find that it was upon Saturday, April 23rd, that we first heard of Miss Violet Smith. Her visit was, I remember, extremely unwelcome to Holmes, for he was immersed at the moment in a very abstruse and complicated problem concerning the peculiar persecution to which John Vincent Harden the well-known tobacco millionaire, had been subjected. - Dr. Watson
