Holmes responded to the gift of the cup with a poem, “To the eleven ladies who presented me with a loving cup.” The poem was first printed privately, in just twelve copies; each was signed by Holmes and copies sent to his eleven admirers. One of those copies is displayed here. The poem alludes to the eleven names inscribed on the base and only visible when the cup is empty.
