Default Read the Lost Sherlock Holmes Story a Historian Just Found in His Attic

A historian from the Scottish burgh of Selkirk (“best known for bannocks, a dried fruit cake” in case you were wondering) has uncovered a lost Sherlock Holmes story in his attic. After the town’s bridge was swept away in a flood, Arthur Conan Doyle penned the tale to raise money for a new one. His literary effort formed part of a collection, The Book o’ the Brig, released on the occasion of a three-day fundraising event in Selkirk in 1904. Doyle’s story is called “Sherlock Holmes: Discovering the Border Burghs and, By Deduction, the Brig Bazaar,” which is a pretty fair summary of what happens.

I read it yesterday. Not really a full story but it was like looking in on an old friend for a minute.
