  1. Besides appearing in various newspapers of the time, this story had also been serialized before in longhand form in the June to October 1910 issues of The Gregg Writer.

  2. I just looked at part of the serialization in English in the Gregg Writer in 1910. It seems very strange that they put a detective story in English in this magazine. It has nothing to do with business or shorthand or typewriting instruction. (A typewriter does figure into the plot.) I wonder why they took up so much space with the English version of the story. It was not being used as a key for shorthand plates at that time.
