This must be the age of finding things. We’ve had the recent discovery of Douglas Adam’s childhood poem about a candle (now partly published in The Frood), of course the prequel to To Kill a Mocking Bird, a long-lost Dr. Seuss story, and now an unseen Sherlock Holmes tale.
Historian Walter Elliot discovered a 1300-word Sherlock Holmes story that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in 1904 as part of a three-day fundraiser to save a wooden bridge in Selkirk, Scotland that had been destroyed by the great flood two years prior. This story is currently on display at the Cross Keys Selkirk Pop-up Community Museum.
