Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born on May 22, 1859, in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Doyles were a prosperous Irish-Catholic family, who had a prominent position in the world of Art. Charles Altamont Doyle, Arthur's father, a chronic alcoholic, was the only member of his family, who apart from fathering a brilliant son, never accomplished anything of note. At the age of twenty-two, Charles had married Mary Foley, a vivacious and very well educated young woman of seventeen.
Sherlock Holmes is the key character in all of the stories in this collection. He is a "consulting detective," what we would today call a private investigator. Apparently, not long after the started his career as a detective, he needed more money and took Watson on as a roommate in his apartment. He lives and works out of 221B Baker street, a small but well furnished apartment with 17 steps leading up the the room from the street. Although he may have needed money at one time, by the time of these stories he is comfortably well off. So much that he often doesn't charge for his services.
John Openshaw knows Major Prendergast, former client of Sherlock Holmes. John Openshaw is the son of Joseph Openshaw and nephew Elias Openshaw.Elias Openshaw took a liking to his nephew John Openshaw.In 1878, Elias Openshaw was in England for eight or nine years. He asked Joseph John Openshaw Openshaw let come and live with him and he was very good with it. When he did not drink, he liked to play with John backgammon and checkers.
Elias John Openshaw Openshaw entrusted to the care of representatives among domestic and traders, such as around his sixteenth year, he was quite the master of the house.
Watson is looking through his records of Holmes's cases between 1882 and 1890 in search of mysteries that are (a) not already known through the press, (b) show off Holmes's great mind, and (c) have, in fact, been solved.
He finds one from 1887, which was solved only according to Holmes's logic, and has never been definitively proven.
Watson sets the scene for this case: it's a dark and stormy night in September…
Watson's wife is visiting her mom, so Watson is staying with Holmes for a few days.
