5/13/1901 Lord Saltire Disappears
March 13, 190?. This day saw the disappearance of Lord Saltire, ten year old son of the Duke of Holdernesse. This event sent Sherlock Holmes into action in "The Adventure of the Priory School." Arthur Conan Doyle's plot involves murder, blackmail, and horses disguised as cows. Sort of.
