The Death of Old Mrs Harold
From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
In the Sherlock Holmes stories
- Sherlock Holmes warned Count Sylvius that he had a note-book containing every action of the Count vile and dangerous life, such as the death of old Mrs Harold. (MAZA, 303)
'It's all here, Count. The real facts as to the death of old Mrs Harold, who left you the Blymer estate, which you so rapidly gambled away.'
'You are dreaming!'
'And the complete life history of Miss Minnie Warrender.'
'Tut! You will make nothing of that!'
'Plenty more here, Count. Here is the robbery in the train-de-luxe to the Riviera on February 13, 1892. Here is the forged cheque in the same year on the Credit Lyonnais.'
'No, you're wrong there.'
'Then I am right on the others!
