In the short story The Case of the Rich Woman, Joe Welsh is a farm hand at the farm of Mr Gardner in Cornwall. He was described as "a good-humoured giant of forty-five, slow of speech and thought, but with a shy twinkle in his blue eyes." Some four years before the events in the story, his wife had died and since then, he had taken to drinking, although by time he met Mrs Amelia Rymer, he had not been going to the pub as often.
