In "The Red-Headed League," why does Jabez Wilson come to see Sherlock Holmes?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Wilson finds a sign on the door of the office where he'd been working for the league. It reads as follows:
"THE RED-HEADED LEAGUE
October 9, 1890."
He comes to see Holmes because his unexpected benefit (the league) is gone, because he doesn't know why, and because it is a mystery.
