The damp, gray, melancholy moor sends shivers through every bone in my body.  As I sit here, looking at the blustery scene outside my carriage window, I wonder to myself, What awaits me at Baskerville Hall?  It was ot so long ago that Dr. Mortimer first approached Holmes and myself, requesting our assistance in solving a case.  The case was that of a curse -- a curse which had haunted the Baskerville family for generations.  Legend spoke of a hound -- a beast, actually -- which had viciously ripped the throat out of Sir Hugo Baskerville on that very same damp, gray, melancholy moor many years earlier.  Recently, Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead, having met his end under similarly mysterious circumstances.  It is now up to me to discover the secret behind the curse before another of the family's scions falls victim to THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES.  (Lisa Mathieu, Alton Central School, N.H.,
