1) Race horses.
2) Stabbing a dead pig with a spear.
3) Ross and Mangles.
4) St. Georges, Hanover Square.
5) Stapleton and his wife.
6) Victor Hatherley.
7) Montague Street.
8) A volume of Pope’s Homer, 2 plated candlesticks and an ivory letter weight.
9) All were unwritten cases of Sherlock Holmes.
