RESULTS: Good Quiz! The mother is Bathsheba; her wise child is Solomon; and the reference is from “The Adventure of the Crooked Man”: Holmes: “You remember the small affair of Uriah and Bathsheba? My Biblical knowledge is a trifle rusty, I fear, but you will find the story in the first or second of Samuel.”
Those who successfully solved the quiz (in order) are: Patricia Villicrusis “Helena,” Milissa Anderson “Faith,” Margie Deck “Gwen” and Sheila Holtgrieve “Daisy,” and Denny Dobry “Kirby.” Well Done All!
You seem to like the slightly esoteric one question quizzes . . . So here is an obscure one for you to solve:
A mom, referred to by Holmes, had a wise child. Provide her name, the name of her child and the story or book where the reference is made. Extra credit for the textual quote.
