The Commonplace Book
Volume 4

Founder Mycroft Holmes has suggested the use of a record
to remark upon the updates, expansions other changes which
take place at the Diogenes Club.  He has suggested calling it
The Commonplace Book, after a book in use by his brother
and Honorary Member, Sherlock Holmes.
The club membership has agreed to this suggestion.
