Adler Irene for love to akin emotion any felt he that not was it. Mind balanced admirably but precise, cold his to abhorrent were, particularly one that and, emotions all. Position false a in himself placed have would he lover a as but, seen has world the that machine observing and reasoning perfect most the, it take I, was he. Sneer a and gibe a with save, passions softer the of spoke never he. Actions and motives men's from veil the drawing for observer - excellent the for things admirable were they. Results mental his all upon doubt a throw might which factor distracting a introduce to was temperament adjusted finely and delicate own his into intrusions such admit to reasoner trained the for but. His as such nature a in emotion strong a than disturbing more be not would, lenses high-power own his of one in crack a or, instrument sensitive a in grit. Memory questionable and dubious of, Adler Irene late the was woman that and, him to woman one but was there yet and.

Lately Holmes of little seen had I. Other each from away us drifted had marriage my. Nature keen own his of energy fierce the and, drug the of drowsiness the, ambition and cocaine between week to week from alternating and, books old his among buried, Street Baker in lodgings our in remained, soul Bohemian whole his with society of form every loathed who, Holmes while, attention my all absorb to sufficient were, establishment own his of master himself finds first who man the around up rise which interests home-centred the and, happiness complete own my. Police official the by hopeless as abandoned been had which mysteries those up clearing and, clues those out following in observation of powers extraordinary and faculties immense his occupied and, crime of study the by attracted deeply, ever as, still was he. Holland of family reigning the for successfully and delicately so accomplished had he which mission the of finally and, Trincomalee at brothers Atkinson the of tragedy singular the of up clearing his of, murder Trepoff the of case the in Odessa to summons his of: doings his of account vague some heard I time to time from.
Companion and friend former my of little knew I, press daily the of readers the all with shared merely I which, however, activity his of signs these beyond.

Street Baker through me led way my when, practice) civil to returned now had I (for patient a to journey a from returning was 1888 - I, March of twentieth the on was night - it one. Powers extraordinary his employing was he how know to and, again Holmes see to desire keen a with seized was I, Scarlet in Study the of incidents dark the with and, wooing my with mind my in associated be always must which, door well-remembered the passed I as.
Blind the against silhouette dark a in twice pass figure spare, tall his saw I, up looked I as even, and, lit brilliantly were rooms his. Him behind clasped hands his and chest his upon sunk head his with, eagerly, swiftly room the pacing was he. Story own their told manner and attitude his, habit and mood every his knew who, me to. Again work at was he. Problem new some of scent the upon hot was and dreams drug-created his of out risen had he. Own my part in been formerly had which chamber the to up shown was and bell the rang I.

Effusive not was manner his. Me see to, think I, glad was he but; was seldom it. Corner the in gasogene a and case spirit a indicated and, cigars of case his across threw, armchair an to me waved he, eye kindly a with but, spoken word a hardly with. Fashion introspective singular his in over me looked and fire the before stood he then.

"Remarked he", you suits wedlock. "You saw I since pounds half a and seven on put have you that, Watson, think I."

"Seven!" Answered I.

"More little a thought have should I, indeed. Watson, fancy I, more trifle a just. Observe I, again practice in and. Harness into go to intended you that me tell not did you."

"Know you do how, then?"

"It deduce I, it see I. Girl servant careless and clumsy most a have you that and, lately wet very yourself getting been have you that know I do how?"

"Much too is this", I said", Holmes dear my. Ago centuries few a lived you had, burned been have certainly would you. It deduce you how imagine can't I clothes my changed have I as but, mess dreadful a in home came and Thursday on walk country a had I that true is it. Out it work you how see to fail I, again, there but, notice her given has wife my and, incorrigible is she, Jane Mary to as."

Together hands nervous, long his rubbed and himself to chuckled he.

"Cuts parallel almost six by scored is leather the, it strikes firelight the where just, shoe left your of inside the on that me tell eyes my"; he said", itself simplicity is it. It from mud crusted remove to order in sole the of edges the round scraped carelessly very has who someone by caused been have they obviously.

Deduction of process his explained he which with ease the at laughing help not could I. "Process your explain you until baffled am I reasoning your of instance successive each at though, myself it do easily could I that simple ridiculously so be to me to appears always thing the", remarked I", reasons your give you hear I when. Yours as good as are eyes my that believe I yet and."

"Armchair an into down himself throwing and, cigarette a lighting, answered he", so quite. "Observe not do you but, see you.
Clear is distinction the. Room this to hall the from up lead which steps the seen frequently have you, example for."


"Often how?"

"Times of hundreds some, well."

"There are many how then?"

"Many how? Know don't I."

"So quite! Observed not have you. Seen have you yet and. Point my just is that. Observed and seen both have I because, steps seventeen are there that know I, now. This in interested be may you, experiences trifling my of two or one chronicle to enough good are you since and, problems little these in interested are you since, by-the-way." Table the upon open lying been had which note-paper pink-tinted, thick of sheet a over threw he.
"He said", post last the by came it. "Aloud it read."

Address or signature either without and, undated was note the.

"Moment deepest very the of matter a upon you consult to desires who gentleman a", said it", o'clock eight to quarter a at, to-night you upon call will there. Exaggerated be hardly can which importance an of are which matters with trusted be safely may who one are you that shown have Europe of houses royal the of one to services recent your. Received quarters all from have we you of account this. Mask a wear visitor your if amiss it take not do and, hour that at then chamber your in be."

"Remarked I", mystery a indeed is this. "Means it that imagine you do what?"

"Yet data no have I. Data has one before theorize to mistake capital a is it. Facts suit to theories of instead, theories suit to facts twist to begins one insensibly. Itself note the but.
It from deduce you do what?"

Written was it which upon paper the and, writing the examined carefully I.

"Processes companion's my imitate to endeavouring, remarked I", do to well presumably was it wrote who man the. "Packet a crown a half under bought be not could paper such. Stiff and strong peculiarly is it."

"Holmes said", word very the is peculiar - that. "All at paper English an not is it. Light the to up it hold."

Paper the of texture the into woven"t"small a with"G"large a and", P"a", g"small a with"E"large a saw and, so did I.

"That of make you do what?" Holmes asked.

"Rather, monogram his or; doubt no, maker the of name the."

"All at not. 'Company for German the is which ', 'Gesellschaft for stands 't' small the with 'G' the. 'Co our like contraction customary a is It '. 'Papier for stands, course of ', 'P '. 'Eg the for Now '. Gazetteer Continental our at glance us Let '." Shelves his from volume brown heavy a down took he.
"Egria, are we Eglonitz - here, eglow. Carlsbad from far not, Bohemia country - in German-speaking a in is it. Paper-mills and glass-factories numerous its for and, Wallenstein of death the of scene the being as 'Remarkable. That of make you do what, boy my, ha, Ha '?" Cigarette his from cloud triumphant blue great a up sent he and, sparkled eyes his.

"Said I", Bohemia in made was paper the.

"Precisely. German a is note the wrote who man the and. Received quarters all from have we you of account sentence - 'This the of construction peculiar the note you do. That written have not could Russian or Frenchman A '. Verbs his to uncourteous so is who German the is it. Face his showing to mask a wearing prefers and paper Bohemian upon writes who German this by wanted is what discover to, therefore, remains only it. Doubts our all resolve to, mistaken not am I if, comes he here and."

Bell the at pull sharp a by followed, curb the against wheels grating and hoofs horses' of sound sharp the was there spoke he as. Whistled holmes.

"He said", sound the by, pair a. "Window the of out glancing, continued he", yes. "Beauties of pair a and brougham little nice a. Apiece guineas fifty and hundred a. Else nothing is there if, Watson, case this in money there's."

"Holmes, go better had I that think I."

"Doctor, bit a not. Are you where stay. Boswell my without lost am I. Interesting be to promises this and. It miss to pity a be would it."

"Client - your but"

"Him mind never. He may so and, help your want may I. Comes he here. Attention best your us give and, Doctor, armchair that in down sit."

Door the outside immediately paused, passage the in and stairs the upon heard been had which, step heavy and slow a. Tap authoritative and loud a was there then.

"In come!" Holmes said.

Hercules a of limbs and chest the with, height in inches six feet six than less been have hardly could who entered man a. Taste bad to akin as upon looked be, England in, would which richness a with rich was dress his. Beryl flaming single a of consisted which brooch a with neck the at secured and silk flame-coloured with lined was shoulders his over thrown was which cloak blue deep the while, coat double-breasted his of fronts and sleeves the across slashed were astrakhan of bands heavy. Appearance whole his by suggested was which opulence barbaric of impression the completed, fur brown rich with tops the at trimmed were which and, calves his up halfway extended which boots. Entered he as it to raised still was hand his for, moment very that adjusted apparently had he which, mask vizard black a, cheekbones the past down extending, face his of part upper the across wore he while, hand his in hat broad-brimmed a carried he. Obstinacy of length the to pushed resolution of suggestive chin straight, long a and, lip hanging, thick a with, character strong of man a be to appeared he face the of part lower the from.

"Note my had you?" Accent German marked strongly a and voice harsh deep a with asked he. "Call would I that you told I." Address to which uncertain if as, us of other the to one from looked he.

"Holmes said", seat a take pray. "Dr, colleague and friend my is this. Cases my in me help to enough good occasionally is who, watson. Address to honour the I have whom?"

"Nobleman Bohemian a, Kramm Von Count the as me address may you.
Importance extreme most the of matter a with trust may I whom, discretion and honour of man a is, friend your, gentleman this that understand I. Alone you with communicate to prefer much should I, not if."

Chair my into back me pushed and wrist the by me caught Holmes but, go to rose I. "He said", none or, both is it. "Me to say may you which anything gentleman this before say may you."

Shoulders broad his shrugged Count the. "Importance no of be will matter the time that of end the at; years two for secrecy absolute to both you binding by", he said", begin must I then. History European upon influence an have may it weight such of is it that say to much too not is it present at."

"Holmes said", promise I.

"I and."

"Visitor strange our continued", mask this excuse will you. "Own my exactly not is myself called just have I which by title the that once at confess may I and, you to unknown be to agent his wishes me employs who person august the."

"Dryly Holmes said", it of aware was I.

"Europe of families reigning the of one compromise seriously and scandal immense an be to grow might what quench to taken be to has precaution every and, delicacy great of are circumstances the. Bohemia of kings hereditary, Ormstein of House great the implicates matter the, plainly speak to."

"Eyes his closing and armchair his in down himself settling, Holmes murmured", that of aware also was I.

Europe in agent energetic most and reasoner incisive most the as him to depicted doubt no been had who man the of figure lounging, languid the at surprise apparent some with glanced visitor our.
Client gigantic his at impatiently looked and eyes his reopened slowly holmes.

"You advise to able better be should I", remarked he", case your state to condescend would Majesty your if."

Agitation uncontrollable in room the down and up paced and chair his from sprang man the. Ground the upon it hurled and face his from mask the tore he, desperation of gesture a with, then. "King the am I"; cried he", right are you. It conceal to attempt I should why?"

"Indeed, why?" Holmes murmured. "Bohemia of King hereditary and, Cassel-Felstein of Duke Grand, Ormstein von Sigismond Gottsreich Wilhelm addressing was I that aware was I before spoken not had Majesty your."

"Person own my in business such doing to accustomed not am I that understand can you", forehead white high his over hand his passing and more once down sitting, visitor strange our said", understand can you but. Power his in myself putting without agent an to it confide not could I that delicate so was matter the yet. You consulting of purpose the for Prague from incognito come have I."

"More once eyes his shutting, Holmes said", consult pray, then.

"Adler Irene, adventuress well-known the of acquaintance the made I, Warsaw to visit lengthy a during, ago years five Some: these briefly are facts the. You to familiar doubt no is name the."

"Eyes his opening without Holmes murmured", Doctor, index my in up her look kindly. Information furnish once at not could he which on person a or subject a name to difficult was it that so, things and men concerning paragraphs all docketing of system a adopted had he years many for. Fishes deep-sea the upon monograph a written had who staff-commander a of that and rabbi Hebrew a of that between in sandwiched biography her found I case this in.

"See me let!" Holmes said. "Hum! 1858 year the in Jersey New in born. Contralto - hum! Hum, Scala la! Warsaw - yes of Opera Imperial donna prima! Stage - ha operatic from retired! So London - quite in living! Back letters those getting of desirous now is and, letters compromising some her wrote, person young this with entangled became, understand I as, Majesty your."

"So precisely. How - but"

"Marriage secret a there was?"


"Certificates or papers legal no?"


"Majesty your follow to fail I then. Authenticity their prove to she is how, purposes other or blackmailing for letters her produce should person young this if?"

"Writing the is there."

"Pooh, pooh! Forgery."

"Note-paper private my."


"Seal own my."


"Photograph my."


"Photograph the in both were we."

"Dear, oh! Bad very is that! Indiscretion an committed indeed has Majesty your."

"Mad - insane was I."

"Seriously yourself compromised have you."

"Then Prince Crown only was I. Young was I. Now thirty but am I."

"Recovered be must it."

"Sell not will she."

"Then, stolen."

"Made been have attempts five. House her ransacked pay my in burglars twice. Travelled she when luggage her diverted we once. Waylaid been has she twice. Result no been has there."

"It of sign no?"

"None absolutely."

Laughed holmes. "He said", problem little pretty a quite is it.

"Reproachfully King the returned", me to one serious very a but.

"Indeed, very. Photograph the with do to propose she does what and?"

"Me ruin to."

"How but?"

"Married be to about am I."

"Heard have I so."

"Scandinavia of King the of daughter second, Saxe-Meningen von Lothman Clotilde to. Family her of principles strict the know may you. Delicacy of soul very the herself is she. End an to matter the bring would conduct my to as doubt a of shadow a."

"Adler Irene and?"

"Photograph the them send to threatens. It do will she and. It do will she that know I. Steel of soul a has she but, her know not do you. Men of resolute most the of mind the and, women of beautiful most the of face the has she. Go - none not would she which to lengths no are there, woman another marry should I than rather."

"Yet it sent not has she that sure are you?"

"Sure am I."

"Why and?"

"Proclaimed publicly was betrothal the when day the on it send would she that said has she because. Monday next be will that."

"Yawn a with Holmes said", yet days three have we then, oh. "Present at just into look to importance of matters two or one have I as, fortunate very is that. Present the for London in stay, course of, will Majesty your?"

"Certainly. Kramm Von Count the of name the under Langham the at me find will you."

"Progress we how know you let to line a you drop shall I then."

"So do pray. Anxiety all be shall I."

"Money to as, then?"

"Blanche carte have you."


"Photograph that have to kingdom my of provinces the of one give would I that you tell I."

"Expenses present for and?"

Table the on it laid and cloak his under from bag leather chamois heavy a took King the.

"Said he", notes in hundred seven and gold in pounds hundred three are there.

Him to it handed and note-book his of sheet a upon receipt a scribbled holmes.

"Address Mademoiselle's and?" asked he.

"St, Avenue Serpentine, Lodge Briony is. Wood john's."

It of note a took holmes. "He said", question other one. "Cabinet a photograph the was?"

"Was it."
