Burns “the greatest detective America has produced,” and his sad fate illustrates what might have awaited the fictional Holmes if he'd been real.
Born in Baltimore in 1861 but educated in Columbus, Ohio, Burns was the son of Irish refugees who fled to America during Ireland’s potato famine. Eventually, after several confrontations between father and son, the younger Burns graduated from high school and promptly enrolled in a local business college.
Not long after joining the U.S. Secret Service, Burns became a star detective known equally for his ability to hunt down a clue and for his penchant for chasing after the limelight. While on special assignment from President Roosevelt, Burns helped to expose the endemic corruption of San Francisco’s Mayor Eugene Schmitz and Abe Reef, the political boss behind the then-ruling Union Labor Party.
Rumors have always surrounded lost works, and in recent years further investigations have revealed more to the traditionally collected canon. These works include plays, poems, essays on the character, and even short stories.
Doyle had been requested by his university to contribute a short piece of literature for a charity magazine. After the mystery is described in full, it is stated that a letter appeared in the press, giving a proposed solution from “an amateur reasoner of some celebrity”.
However, this suggested solution is proved wrong by a confession from the organizing criminal once he is later arrested for an unrelated crime. Gaining suggested that Doyle was “getting out some Holmes during the series hiatus, but given the failure of the unnamed detective it appears he was parodying his most famous creation.
The story was published in book form in Arthur Conan Doyle's Tales of Terror and Mystery in 1923 and has for years appeared in French editions of the complete adventures. It follows the same pattern; the mystery this time surrounds the appearance of a dead man in a railway carriage, with six pocket watches in his jacket.
An explanation is offered by an amateur detective, but the narrator notes that it is flawed, as it doesn't take into account all the facts. A man involved in the accidental murder of the victim writes a letter to the detective, saying that it was a “mighty clever solution” but entirely incorrect and continues to share the true events of that day.
Various authors have attempted to complete the story (named “The Adventure of the Tall Man” by Peter Gaining) and put it alongside the canon. “How Watson Learned the Trick” (1924) Edit In 1922, several authors were approached to contribute to the library of Queen Mary's Dolls' House.
Doyle wrote a short Sherlock Holmes story, just 503 words long, onto the tiny pages of a specially constructed miniature book: “How Watson Learned the Trick”. The story was later published alongside works by other authors in The Book of the Queen's Dolls' House Library (1924).
Like “The Field Bazaar”, this story is a breakfast scene, during which Watson attempts to mimic Holmes style in guessing his thoughts. Unlike almost all parts of the Sherlock Holmes story it is written in the third person, presumably due to its length.
It is essentially a rewrite of the American chapters of A Study in Scarlet, with the London action moving to San Francisco. The play is notable for its contrasting sensationalist and comic scenes, and it is contained in Linger's Apocrypha.
It premiered 8 years later, at the Delphi Theater, London on 4 June 1910, with H. A. Saints bury as Sherlock Holmes and Lynn Harding as Dr. Grimes by Boycott. The play, originally entitled The Stoner Case, differs from the story in several small details, such as the names of some characters and the timeline is also changed.
Holmes mentions Mary Morgan, who had already proposed Dr. Watson, twice and Charles Augustus Silverton also appears as a character. The Crown Diamond: An Evening With Mr Sherlock Holmes (1921) Edit “The Crown Diamond” is an alternate version of the short story The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone though it predates its counterpart by some time, Sometime during the original run the short story was adapted from the play, this is the reason that the narrative is told in third person rather than by the traditional narrator Watson.
Some Personalis about Mr. Sherlock Holmes (1917) Edit This essay was featured in the Strand Magazine as a Christmas treat to its readers. The Truth About Sherlock Holmes (1923) Edit An essay from Collier's Weekly, in which Doyle explains exactly where Holmes came from.
Richard Lancelot Green's The Uncollected Sherlock Holmes also includes five prefaces to the various editions of Sherlock Holmes stories and novels, Doyle's speech at the Still Convention Dinner (1921), some chapters from Doyle's autobiography Memoirs and Adventures, and several interviews. Initial suspicions of forgery were reported by Vincent Starred and it was eventually discovered by Health Pearson that the story was originally written by Arthur Whitaker, who had sent it to Doyle in hope of a collaboration.
Pearson, Green, Tracy and the Doyle estate agree that Whitaker wrote the story, though Gaining still claims that “the opening scene between Holmes and Watson betrays the hand of the master”, and that the story is partly written by Doyle. He points out that Doyle's wife, sons and biographer were fooled by the style, and it is possible there was a redraft made.
(Perhaps contributing to this misconception is the fact that the story appears for the first time only in a work of Doyle's, and all subsequent printings are from that source.) In fact, this story was written by Barrie for Doyle following a period of the two of them working together on a play, Jane Annie.
In Gaining and Tracy's books, they speculate whether this play was written by Arthur Conan Doyle. However, no manuscript exists in Doyle's hand, and no reference of the play is left by him, it has been assumed by most that it is little more than a William Gillette curiosity.
