Poor Mycroft, receiving such a letter from such a man and being unable to tell him the truth. Nice choice of font too.

It was a search to find that font. Everything else was either too fancy or too modern. I'm still not entirely happy with it, the loops of the 't's bug me.

That's Watson, courteous and kind, through and through.

Indeed. Except to bad people. ;-)

Ach. This rings true from start to finish. Heartbreaking.

I'm glad it feels genuine. It's a hard tone to hit.

Makes me want to slap Holmes...a bit.

I just hope Mycroft wrote something back to ease the heartache a bit

Knowing Mycroft in general, if he sent anything back it was very formal acknowledgement of the condolences and a return of the same, all worded in a way that could be taken as condolence for the loss of Holmes, or apologies for Holmes' faked death putting Watson through hell.

This is heartbreaking, and that cursive font makes it all the worse.

Thank you. I'm glad the font worked for this.
