Paco Iglesias' informal letter

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did:

Dear Holmes,

Thank you for your letter. It was great to hear from you.
Sorry for not writing earlier but I’ve been so occupied since you went back to London.
I’m writing to thank you again for resolving the strange death of my uncle Charles and for saving my life. When you stayed here it was very interesting to see how two clever men, you and Watson, could find out the truth about that frightening hound.

After your departure, I’ve been quite busy in my new house. I’ll need time to get used to living in this wonderful valley. It’s a bit hard when I have been living all my life in North America. I’ll have to hire a butler soon because Barrymore and his wife have left the village after the terrifying death of Selden, Barrymore’s brother-in-law. Also I’ve been seeing and talking with Mrs Stapleton every evening for the last two months. She’s the best woman I’ve ever meet. We are thinking about living together.

That’s hardly all for now. But I have a slight problem. Four days ago I heard at night a howl which woke me up. I saw how you killed the hound and how Stapleton disappeared in the marsh, so I don’t worry. But, what should I do? Would you give me some advice, please?

Please, don’t forget to write back soon. Would you like to go back to Baskerville Hall to investigate again and to see the changes I have had in my house? Mrs Stapleton, Laura Lyons and Dr. Mortimer would like to see you. Summer would be a good season: London is so crowed at that time and you’ll be able to have a rest here.

I hope to hear from you soon. Give my regards to Watson.

Best wishes,

Henry Baskerville
