Priory Scholars of NYC Spring 2017 Meeting

Dear Students,

We are delighted to invite you to our 2017 spring class, a season when love and attempted murder are in the air. We will convene on Saturday May 6, 2017, from 12:00-4:00 PM. Class will be held, as usual, at THE CHURCHILL TAVERN, 45 East 28th Street, New York, NY 10016. The restaurant is located between Madison and Park Avenues, around the corner from the 28th Street subway station for the 4 & 6 trains.

While we have a reasonably large dining room, we must tell the restaurant how many students to expect. As the room seats approximately 40 people comfortably it is a good idea to register early. To confirm your enrollment, please email no later than Saturday, April 22. The tuition fee of $40 includes your meal and two brunch drinks. Pre-payment is preferred, although you may pay cash at the door. Payment should be made to our Bursar, Christopher Zordan, by Saturday, April 22. You may transfer money via Paypal to; choose the “send money to friends” option. Send checks to Christopher Zordan, 242 Rooney Court, East Brunswick, NJ 08816.

If financial challenges might prevent you from attending, contact the Headmaster at about our scholarship program.

Our lesson plan is based “The Solitary Cyclist.” We will be challenged by another of Prof. Raj Pandravada’s clever quizzes. Please note the following topics of discussion:

  • Women in Victorian society – how are Holmes’ attitudes similar or different from those of his age?
  • Watson on his own – how would you evaluate his ability as a detective? And what of Holmes’ ability as a teacher?
  • Heroism and Villainy – what do we make of the villains in this story? How do they compare to other canonical villains? How do they compare to each other?

Of course, there will be toasts, homework presentations, a rousing rendition of our school song, and more! If you are interested in offering a toast or completing a homework assignment, please inquire of the Headmaster.

Yours, with milk and biscuits,

Nick Martorelli, Headmaster
