Part one–The People of the Drama (The Valley of Fear)

Chapter 5 “Have you seen all you want of the study?” asked White Mason as we reentered the house.“For the time,” said the inspector, and Holmes nodded.“Then perhaps you would now like to hear the evidence of some of the people in the house.

Part one–The Tragedy of Birlstone (The Valley of Fear)

Chapter 3 Now for a moment I will ask leave to remove my own insignificant personality and to describe events which occurred before we arrived upon the scene by the light of knowledge which came to us afterwards. Only in this way can I make the reader appreciate the people concerned and the strange setting …

Part one–Sherlock Holmes Discourses (The Valley of Fear)

Chapter 2 It was one of those dramatic moments for which my friend existed. It would be an overstatement to say that he was shocked or even excited by the amazing announcement. Without having a tinge of cruelty in his singular composition, he was undoubtedly callous from long over-stimulation. Yet, if his emotions were dulled, …

Part one–The Warning (The Valley of Fear)

Chapter 1 Sam inclined to think—” said I.“I should do so,” Sherlock Holmes remarked impatiently.I believe that I am one of the most long-suffering of mortals; but I’ll admit that I was annoyed at the sardonic interruption.“Really, Holmes,” said I severely, “you are a little trying at times.”He was too much absorbed with his own …

Part Four–The Hound of the Baskervilles (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 14 One of Sherlock Holmes’s defects—if, indeed, one may call it a defect—was that he was exceedingly loath to communicate his full plans to any other person until the instant of their fulfilment. Partly it came no doubt from his own masterful nature, which loved to dominate and surprise those who were around him. …

Part Four–Fixing the Nets (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 13 “We’re at close grips at last,” said Holmes as we walked together across the moor. “What a nerve the fellow has! How he pulled himself together in the face of what must have been a paralyzing shock when he found that the wrong man had fallen a victim to his plot. I told …

Part Four–Death on the Moor (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 12 For a moment or two I sat breathless, hardly able to believe my ears. Then my senses and my voice came back to me, while a crushing weight of responsibility seemed in an instant to be lifted from my soul. That cold, incisive, ironical voice could belong to but one man in all …

Part Four–The Man on the Tor (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 11 The extract from my private diary which forms the last chapter has brought my narrative up to the 18th of October, a time when these strange events began to move swiftly towards their terrible conclusion. The incidents of the next few days are indelibly graven upon my recollection, and I can tell them …

Part Four–Extract from the Diary of Dr. Watson (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 10 So far I have been able to quote from the reports which I have forwarded during these early days to Sherlock Holmes. Now, however, I have arrived at a point in my narrative where I am compelled to abandon this method and to trust once more to my recollections, aided by the diary …

Chapter 9 [SECOND REPORT OF DR. WATSON] Baskerville Hall, Oct. 15th. My dear Holmes:If I was compelled to leave you without much news during the early days of my mission you must acknowledge that I am making up for lost time, and that events are now crowding thick and fast upon us. In my last …

Part Four–First Report of Dr. Watson (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 8 From this point onward I will follow the course of events by transcribing my own letters to Mr. Sherlock Holmes which lie before me on the table. One page is missing, but otherwise they are exactly as written and show my feelings and suspicions of the moment more accurately than my memory, clear …

Part Four–The Stapletons of Merripit House (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 7 The fresh beauty of the following morning did something to efface from our minds the grim and gray impression which had been left upon both of us by our first experience of Baskerville Hall. As Sir Henry and I sat at breakfast the sunlight flooded in through the high mullioned windows, throwing watery …

Part Four–Baskerville Hall (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 6 Sir Henry Baskerville and Dr. Mortimer were ready upon the appointed day, and we started as arranged for Devonshire.

Part Four–Three Broken Threads (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 5 Sherlock Holmes had, in a very remarkable degree, the power of detaching his mind at will. For two hours the strange business in which we had been involved appeared to be forgotten, and he was entirely absorbed in the pictures of the modern Belgian masters. He would talk of nothing but art, of …

Chapter 4 Our breakfast-table was cleared early, and Holmes waited in his dressing-gown for the promised interview. Our clients were punctual to their appointment, for the clock had just struck ten when Dr. Mortimer was shown up, followed by the young baronet. The latter was a small, alert, dark-eyed man about thirty years of age, …

Chapter 2 “I have in my pocket a manuscript,” said Dr. James Mortimer.“I observed it as you entered the room,” said Holmes.“It is an old manuscript.”“Early eighteenth century, unless it is a forgery.”“How can you say that, sir?”“You have presented an inch or two of it to my examination all the time that you have …

Part Four–Mr. Sherlock Holmes (The Hound of the Baskervilles)

Chapter 1 Mr. Sherlock Holmes, who was usually very late in the mornings, save upon those not infrequent occasions when he was up all night, was seated at the break-fast table. I stood upon the hearth-rug and picked up the stick which our visitor had left behind him the night before. It was a fine, …
