A New Scion Society is Born

I'm so pleased to be part of the Vatican Cameos, a group of Catholic Sherlockians mentioned here previously and now officially recognized as a scion (affiliate) society of the Baker Street Irregulars
Our leader, the author Ann Lewis, has the title of Tosca after Cardinal Tosca, whose sudden death Sherlock Holmes investigated "at the express desire of His Holiness the Pope," Leo XIII (BLAC). The other case he handled for the same pope was, of the case of the Vatican Cameos (HOUN).

The patron of our society is Monsignor Ronald A. Knox, without whom who knows where the Great Game would be, if anywhere.
