    Redmond's Delicate Question

    In the introductory paragraphs of this story, Watson makes much of "the year '95", and it provides much of what solid information there is about Holmes's activities during 1895. To Sherlockians, of course, it is always 1895, which gives the cases of that year special importance. What qualities does "Black Peter" have that justify its position in Holmes's annus mirabilis?
