Thursday’s Piece

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle used to tell how he sent a telegram to each of twelve friends, all men of great virtue and reputation and of considerable position in society. The message was worded, “Fly at once, all is discovered.”
Within twenty-four hours, the story goes, all twelve had left the country.
