<p data-p-id="2d9b4762ee6056c716617b92cd98e1d2">The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes IV THE BOSCOMBE VALLEY MYSTERY Andrew Delaplaine © Copyright 2012 by Gramercy Park Press All rights reserved Inquiries to: andrewdelaplaine@mac.com DEDICATION The pecuniary rigors attending the struggles of the unknown writer are well documented in the annals of history, from the scribes drinking sack in ancient Rome down to the present day hacks in Sodom-by-the-Sea drinking DewarÕs on the rocks (with a twist). It is thus of paramount importance that those bartenders who tend on celebratory occasions (in the words of the trade) Òto overpourÓ be lauded and magnified, and otherwise recognized, and so this modest work is gratefully dedicated to Daniel Clayton Ewan Crum, who, bringing to the task the tenacity of a cur dog, will not be denied his place of glory behind a bar. Note: This is entirely a work of fiction. It is in no sense a roman ˆ clef. Names, characters, places and incidents are either the product of the authorÕs imagination or, when characters, places of business or institutions are in fact real (such as the name of a cafŽ on South Beach), they are used fictitiously to provide a semblance of verisimilitude; there is no intention of portraying any actual person, place or incident.
