Mr. Holmes of course often has much to apologise for but he’s not the only one. A client perhaps writes to express regret they ever doubted him. The Diogenes Club writes to a member to apologise for locking him in the gentlemen’s facilities overnight, it not being the done thing to call for help.
And here is an example, care of Mrs. Hudson:
Dear Mr. Holmes,
I do apologise that I did not see your note saying you would be returning in the early hours of the morning.
I hope the swelling is going down and contrary to my statement in the heat of the moment, I will not be charging you for the new frying pan after all.
Yours, Sybilla Hudson (Mrs.)
