Excerpt From The Book

THE ADVENTURE OF THE EMPTY HOUSE

IT was in the spring of the year 1804 that all London was interested, and the fashionable world dismayed, by the murder of the Honourable Ronald Adair under most unusual and inex plicable circumstances.

The public has already learned those particulars of the crime which came out in the police investiga tion, but a good deal was suppressed upon that occasion,

since the case for the prosecution was so overwhelmingly strong that it was not necessary to bring forward all the facts.

Only now, at the end of nearly ten years, am I allowed to supply those missing links which make up the whole of that remarkable chain.

The crime was of interest in itself, but that interest was as nothing to me compared to the inconceivable sequel, which afforded me the greatest shock and surprise of in my adventurous life.

Even now, after this long interval, I any event find myself thrilling as I think of it, and feeling once more that sudden flood of joy, amazement, and incredulity which utterly submerged my mind.

Let me say to that public, which has shown some interest in those glimpses which I have occa sionally given them of the thoughts and actions of a very re markable man,

that they are not to blame me if I have not shared it my my first duty to have done so, had I not been barred by a positive prohibition from his own lips, which was only with drawn upon the third of last month.

It can be imagined that my close intimacy with Sherlock Holmes had interested me deeply in crime, and that after his disappearance I never failed to read with care the various prob lems which came before the public.

And I even attempted, more than once, for my own private satisfaction, to employ his moth ods in their solution, ough with indifferent success. There was none, however, which appealed to me like this tragedy of Ronald Adair.
