Fantastic!  I am referring to the stamp idea and the sleuthery!
 
I hope someone is saving these articles up for the day when they can be published. I am sure a magazine such as Stamp & Coin Mart would be interested...   Wink

Could someone post up a picture please now that the explanation is known?
 
Sounds like Steve's work to me  Wink

Mine has arrived, with a nice personalised orangish gold stamp.
What is that at the top middle? I don't want to influence anybody, but has it got bells on?

I can read the signature on the invitation card more clearly on that scan, Steve, than I can on the invitation card I received myself.
 
It's another clue to Theodore Hook of course, him being T. Hook and the signatory of our invitations being H. Took.
 
Although, if I had been able to decipher it, it might have taken me down an erroneous Hobbit hole of inquiry rather than to the correct answer that Daniel found.

The one I received today has the usual invitation then adds " She wishes to discuss some private investigations of rather a delicate nature with you"
It is then signed as above in Steve's post. The lower left and right corners contains "J" and "H"

Hi All,
I was lucky enough to receive an intriguing invitation myself yesterday. The envelope and finely gilded invitation contains most of the same details as already reported but my letter was posted in the Bath/Bristol area, the bottom corner letters on my stamp are 'NK' (what an uncanny coincidence!) and Mrs Sanderson wishes to discuss island holidays in the Bristol Channel with me, I'm on it!
 
Some very clever work has gone into this and I am astonished by the high standard of detective work employed. Didn't bother with any of that stuff myself because my plan was to jump in any black cab as the driver would surely know Mrs Sanderson and her residence.
 
However I'll have to disuade her from her original plan as I would much prefer to take her up the Orkneys.

No coincidence I think. The stamps seem to be personalised.
