    Redmond's Delicate Question

    It appears that Doyle's readers are supposed to think of Australia the way later generations thought of the American wild west. Is this tale "The Boscombe Valley Mystery" all over again, or is the ciphered message sufficiently different from the mysterious cry of "Cooee"?
