Keeping A Promise

The BSI Archival History website continues to be updated, the latest being a new discovery by Mike Dirda at the Ask Thucydides dept., and a link to a lovely tribute to the late Ronald Mansbridge, one of my all-time favorite Irregulars, at the Editor's Gas-Bag.

A nice comment about the novel by mystery writer and Sherlockian Dan Andriacco at his blog recently, greatly appreciated by me:

I'd have posted Mr. Andriacco’s kind comments sooner, but only returned last night from several magnificent weeks in Yorkshire and Scotland.  I will post a few words about the Doylean aspects of the trip, especially my visit to Peterhead, from which Conan Doyle sailed on the Arctic whaler Hope in February 1880, in a couple of days here.
