REIG: Holmes was involved in "the question of the Netherland-Sumatra Company and of the colossal schemes of Baron Maupertuis" but the affair "is too recent in the minds of the public, and too intimately concerned with politics and finance, to be a fitting subject for this series of sketches."
DYIN: Culverton Smith had been a successful planter in Sumatra. Holmes claimed to suffer from a disease originating from Sumatra.
SUSS: Holmes was involved in a case of the giant rat of Sumatra, "a story for which the world is not yet prepared."
