  • My husband left me this strange suicide letter! He was writing a paper worth a fortune but he hid it somewhere.
  • " edith. i'm not going to whine, i've had a good life. i've found wealth and happiness as a teacher, a seller of knowledge. but i find myself depressed beyond hope...and so i'm choosing the hour and manner of my own demise. i have treated you badly. i demanded you dyed your brown curls blonde. i thought i could buy you when i should have won your love. i called you a witch. i'd complain : where's the woman i married? i said you ate too much. if i wanted change, i could have used a carrot rather than a stick. you probably wanted to wring my neck. forgive me. farewell."

  • Mrs. Nettleston entered the detectives office one morning explaining the her husband's suicide letter and how her husband was working on a big paper that he'd hidden somewhere.

  • 8 karats, Edgar wouldn't stop talking about it.
  • Mrs. Nettleston gave the detective the letter and he read it carefully...

  • The detective was very clever and noticed many clues in the letter.
  • A few hours later the later the detective and Mrs. Nettleston head to the wine cellar in her home.
  • The detective had then figured out the rest of the clues...
