Lot 630: ALS signed "A. Conan Doyle," one page, 4.5 x 7, Hill House Hotel letterhead, no date. Letter to "Dear Hartland." In full: "I am away but will be back in a week or two. I don't see what I can do in this matter. If my advice is any good you can have it, but as to doing it myself it is out of the question as I am full of work." In very good condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature) and overall foxing. Doyle wrote the Sherlock Holmes short story 'The Adventure of the Dancing Men' while at the Hill House Hotel in 1903.
