    “Susan, Eve’s Daughter,” Aslan said. “These are for you,” and he handed her a bow and a quiver and a little ivory horn. “You must use the bow only in great need,” he said, “for I do not mean you to fight in the battle. It does not easily miss. And when you put this horn to your lips and blow it, then, wherever you are, I think help of some kind will come to you.”

    “What kind of help?” Susan asked. “Can you be more specific?”

    “Oh, I don’t know,” Aslan said, gesturing airily. “Inner strength, or a guy will come, or something.”

    “There are no arrows in this quiv –” Susan began.

    “You’re welcome,” Aslan said. “It’s kind of rude not to say thank you when someone gives you a bunch of gifts for no reason, Susan.”

    aw, thank you for asking! :D I am indeed cycling around, although the long blue scarf is being kept in reserve for what I am assured will be a cold, dark winter. I’m still not entirely sure what PhDing is supposed to involve, but to date I’ve mostly been hanging out with a lot of dusty books, attempting to learn Latin, and eating Italian pastries. So far so good! I’ll hopefully get to take some Cambridge-y photos soon…

    The first manuscript page from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s second Sherlock Holmes story is returning to London after an absence of more than a century.

    The handwritten manuscript from The Sign of Four in 1889 is said to be one of the rarest items known to enthusiasts of the fictional detective.

    Sir Arthur’s leaf of paper is the earliest manuscript page of the famous author’s Holmes collection to be sent to publishers and printed verbatim. (x)

    Such marvelous handwriting…
