Excerpt by Detective Inspector James Wright

Now sitting in the twilight of my life, I feel the need to leave some record of the man so ostracized by the papers now that he is no longer able to defend himself. It is often the case that people forget a service but never a slight, and as such I feel that I, myself must leave some record of the man who was the standard for justice when it was such a murky matter. I could begin with the first time we had the occasion of meeting and through a matter of course working together, but as the matter is muddled itself I find myself choosing from one of our later adventures.

As I glance through my papers marking our deeds between the years 1863 to 1872 I find it is hard to choose from the many adventures. Here I find the adventure of the Italian mason, and here the case of the broken window, but I feel that the case of the Belgravine Ghost best demonstrates his unique skill as well as the sense of compassion that my friend was known for.
