Response 1:

Dear Mr and Mrs Watson,

I sincerely apologize for the amount of noise being emitted from my apartment lately. I understand it is rather uncharacteristic of me to be this noisy but I do have a reasonable explanation.

As you may know, I live alone and very rarely do I have company. However, my brother and his children have unexpectedly come for what he calls a 'friendly visit', when, really, I simply suspect he's checking up on me. His children are rather rowdy and disruptive to the perfectly organized chaos of my apartment. They seem to find it a perfectly reasonable activity to 'play' with my experimental specimens. You've met my friend Alfred, haven't you? The cheery skull that sits, smiling, atop my fireplace. He clearly doesn't look like he enjoys being played with. I've also bought myself a firearm, which I find necessary considering my line of work as a consulting detective. Suffice it to say, the graffiti on my wall makes for good target practice. My dog, Gladston, seems to be overjoyed by the new addition of humans in this apartment, for reasons far beyond me.

I'm sorry you have to suffer through the noises of my family. I'll have them gone as soon as possible; though it seems unlikely that my brother will be leaving before he's certain of my... well-being, which- I have a feeling- will take at least two more weeks. In the mean time, I'll be able to detain my dog using my various concoctions that he's rather familiar with. The kids, on the other hand, I'll have to take along to work with me- without the knowledge of my brother, of course. I'm sure they'll be endlessly fascinated with my activities.

I hope the noise hasn't caused you as much inconvenience as it has me.

Kind regards,

Mr Holmes.
