Excerpt From The Book

Ar three o’clock precisely I was at Baker Street, but Holmes had not yet returned. The landlady informed me that he had left the house shortly after eight o’clock in the morning.

I sat down beside the fire, however, with the intention of await ing him, however long he might be.

I was already deeply interested in his inquiry, for, though it was murrounded by none of the grim and strange features which were associated with the two crimes which I have already recorded, still, the nature of the case and the exalted station of his client gave it a character of its own.

Indeed, apart from the nature of the investigation which my friend had on hand, there was some thing in his masterly grasp of a situation, and his keen,

incl sive reasoning, which made it a pleasure to me to study his system of work, and to follow the quick, subtle methods by which he disentangled the most inextricable mysteries.

So accustomed was I to his invariable success that the very pos sibility of his failing had ceased to enter into my head.

It was close upon four before the door opened, and a drunken-looking groom, ill-kempt and side whiskered, with an inflamed face and disreputable clothes, walked into the room.

Accustomed as I was to my friend’s amazing powers in the use of disguises, I had to look three times before I was cer tain that it was indeed be.

With a nod he vanished into the bedroom, whence he emerged in five minutes tweed maited and respectable, as of old. Putting his hands into his pockets, he stretched out his legs in front of the fire, and laughed heartily for some minutes.
