Holmes had, a few days earlier received a visit from a certain foreign nobleman who had recently inherited a very considerable title. It seems this titled gentleman had been so indiscreet as to fall in love with a young English Lady by the name of Faulkner, socially inferior and he had foolishly made her a promise of marriage.
This was later broken off at his family's insistence and unfortunately the young lady died of a broken heart, leaving behind a sister, also considerable evidence in the form of some letters, photographs and jewelry with inscriptions. These the sister kept and along with these articles of evidence she is being kept in a house in St. John’s Wood by two blackmailers
