I love the sort of literary trivia you've set out here from other Conan Doyle stories, It's good to know that he did pluck names from the newspaper in this way, as that lends a bit of extra credibility to my William Kirwan theory.

I've posted my original note about the William Kirwan/Reigate Squire link on a couple of Sherlock Holmes forums, so maybe they'll turn up some interesting stuff too. If they do, I'll be sure to pass it along.
Hi Paul,

Thanks for keeping me up-dated on anything further.

Jeff
