Summer Meeting Notice

“It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but you are a conductor of light.”
— Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson, “The Hound of the Baskervilles”

You are cordially invited to the Summer 2007 meeting of the Amateur Mendicant Society of Detroit at which Dr. David Mohan will attempt to shed light on a little-known scandal of Baskerville Hall.

Sunday, July 22, 2007
Fox & Hounds, 39560 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills
(just south of Long Lake Road)
Restaurant phone: (248) 644-4800
Libations at 12:30 p.m.; buffet lunch at 1 p.m.

For the main course, Dr. David Mohan will dissect the most famous and most popular Holmes’ story penned by Dr. Watson, examining the clues of another chilling mystery arising from the tale (tail?) of the Giant Hound. Called “Three Knights Upon the Moor: The Secret of Baskerville Hall Revealed,” this presentation is definitely not for the faint of heart.

Also, the afternoon’s brief Canonical discussion concerns the case of tea broker Bob Ferguson, who was alarmed at the behavior of his wife – and with good reason – in “The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire.”

All in all, this meeting of the Mendicants is sure to bring a welcome chill to the summer’s sultry swelter.

For the Mendicant meal & merriment, send a check for $25 per person by Monday, July 16 to:

Edward F. Stein, A.M.S.

The buffet lunch will include the house specialty: Chef-carved prime rib, broiled salmon filet, soup or salad and potatoes. Rolls, dessert, coffee/tea are included. There will also be a cash bar.

Respectfully submitted,
Robert Musial, Tantalus
