A Conversation for Sherlock Holmes Part I - the Character

Letters to 221b Baker Street

I don't know if it is still the case, but 221 Baker Street was once occupied by The Abbey National Building Society and, as they received many letters addressed to the man at "221b", they took the somewhat surprising decision to answer them.

Letters to SH were (are?) replied to by his "secretary" and some were collected into a book which I found very entertaining, called (not surprisingly) "Letters To Sherlock Holmes"

This is mentioned in the Part II of the Entry (A2913734), with the text of one of the letters from Abbey National.
