MR. TREADGOLD CUTS IN - VALENTINE WILLIAMS
MR. TREADGOLD CUTS IN - VALENTINE WILLIAMS
"LOOKING backward, I fancy it was on the summer morning, some years ago, when the shadow of the Cleremount Abbey horror first darkened the threshold of Messrs. Bowl, Treadgold & Flack's dignified premises in Savile Row, that the resolve hardened in me to keep a note-book with a view to ultimately setting down in black and white some of the outstanding examples of my friend H. B. Treadgold's prowess as a crime investigator. Although for the past fifteen years, in succession to my father, the late Nathaniel Duckett, of Lincoln's Inn, I have been the firm's legal adviser, there is nothing improper in my undertaking. It is not of Treadgold, my tailor client, but of Treadgold the crime analyst I shall write; and if in the course of my narrative I succeed in painting the portrait of Treadgold the man, and my most admired friend, I shall not feel that the hours I have spent at my typewriter have been in vain.
Of course, many of the problems submitted to his scrutiny in his capacity as an amateur investigator are of a much too private a nature ever to see the light of day. For the others I have, where necessary, changed the names of people and places so as not to identify living individuals. It is not from any love of sensationalism that I have decided to become my old friend's Boswell or, to put it more aptly, to play Corporal Trim to his Uncle Toby—the allusion to Tristram Shandy will presently be made clear. On more than one count Horace Bowl Treadgold is a remarkable personality."
