Dear Sir

I am giving a reading for the Indian Famine Fund next monday at 3 in the Queens Hall Langham Place. Sir Walter Besant takes the Chair. If you could give me a line to say so you might helps a most needful charity. I have advertised for a week in your columns, but it is liable to be overlooked or forgotten.

I shall read from my own tales, some extracts from the Sherlock Holmes methods of reasoning, "The Drive from Brighton" in "Rodney Stone", a scene from "Brigadier Gerard", another from "The Refugees" and a tale which has not appeared in book form.

I certainly should not trouble you if it were not for a charity.

Yours faithfully

A. Conan Doyle.
