Notes: This is a reprint of THE EPISODE OF THE BLACK DIAMOND from PENNY PICTORIAL issue 515 (April, 1909). In the anthology it is mistakenly stated to have been originally published in 1920. Apparently this story also appeared in a 1930 anthology edited by Dorothy L. Sayers, though I have no further information about that.
