A Call for Help…

27 Oct

To Doctor Watson from Mister Humanfuc

My Dear Doctor

I write to you from my humble abode in the East End of your fine city in the hope that yourself and the famous detective Mister Sherlock Holmes may be aReynolds'_map_of_The_East_End_1882ble to help me.

My young cousin, Bob, has been kidnapped by some never-do-very-wells (which I am told is a frequent occurrence in your fine town). I have received a telegram this morning detailing how the ransom money is to be paid. As I am but a poor immigrant in your ‘luverly’ city, I beg that you are able to come to my aid in this terrible affair.

Please call at my lodgings at your earliest convenience:
1A, Hangman’s Lane, London.
