"Wife my is, then, where?"

"Supply speedily shall I which detail a is that."

St lord. Head his shook simon. "Departed he manner old-fashioned, stately a in bowing and, remarked he", mine or yours than heads wiser take will it that afraid am I.

"St Lord of good very is it. Laughing, Holmes Sherlock said", own his with level a on it putting by head my honour to simon. "Cross-questioning this all after cigar a and soda and whisky a have shall I that think I. Room the into came client our before case the to as conclusions my formed had I."

"Holmes dear my!"

"Prompt as quite were which, before remarked I as, none though, cases similar several of notes have I. Certainty a into conjecture my turn to served examination whole my. Example Thoreau's quote to, milk the in trout a find you when as, convincing very occasionally is evidence circumstantial."

"Then, up what's?" Eye his in twinkle a with Holmes asked. "Dissatisfied look you."

"Dissatisfied feel I and. St infernal this is it. Case marriage simon. Business the of tail nor head neither make can I."

"Really! Me surprise you."

"Affair mixed a such of heard ever who? Fingers my through slip to seems clue every. Day all it upon work at been have I."

"Serpentine the dragging been have I, yes."

"For what, name heaven's in?"

"St Lady of body the of search in. Simon."

Heartily laughed and chair his in back leaned Holmes sherlock.

"Fountain Square Trafalgar of basin the dragged you have?" asked he.

"Why? Mean you do what?"

"Other the in as one the in lady this finding of chance a good as just have you because."

Companion my at glance angry an shot lestrade. "Snarled he", it about all know you suppose I.

"Up made is mind my but, facts the heard just only have I, well."

"Indeed, oh! Matter the in part no plays Serpentine the that think you then?"

"Unlikely very it think I."

"It in this found we that is it how explain kindly will you perhaps then?" Water in soaked and discoloured all, veil and wreath bride's a and shoes satin white of pair a, silk watered of wedding-dress a floor the onto tumbled and, spoke he as bag his opened he. "Pile the of top the upon wedding-ring new a putting, he said", there. "Holmes Master, crack to you for nut little a is there."

"Indeed, oh!" air the into rings blue blowing, friend my said.
"Serpentine the from them dragged you?"

"No. Park-keeper a by margin the near floating found were they.

"Wardrobe his of neighbourhood the in found be to is body man's every, reasoning brilliant same the by. This through at arrive to hope you did what pray and?"

"Disappearance the in Millar Flora implicating evidence some at."

"Difficult it find will you that afraid am I."

"Now, indeed, you are?" Bitterness some with Lestrade cried. "Inferences your and deductions your with practical very not are you that, Holmes, afraid am I. Minutes many as in blunders two made have you. Millar Flora Miss implicate does dress this."

"How and?"

"Pocket a is dress the in. Card-case a is pocket the in. Note a is card-case the in. Note very the is here and." Him of front in table the upon down it slapped he. "Ready is all when me see will 'You: this to listen. Once at come. F. H. M. St Lady that been has along all theory my Now '. Disappearance her for responsible was, doubt no, confederates with, she that and, Millar Flora by away decoyed was simon. Reach their within her lured which and door the at hand her into slipped quietly doubt no was which note very the is, initials her with signed, here."

"Laughing, Holmes said", Lestrade, good very. "Indeed fine very are really you. It see me let." Satisfaction of cry little a gave he and, riveted became instantly attention his but, way listless a in paper the up took he. "He said", important indeed is this.

"Ha! so it find you?"

"So extremely. Warmly you congratulate I."

Look to head his bent and triumph his in rose lestrade. "Side wrong the at looking you're", shrieked he", why!"

"Side right the is this, contrary the on."

"Side right the? Mad you're! Here over pencil in written note the is here."

"Deeply me interests which, bill hotel a of fragment the be to appears what is here over and."

"It in nothing there's. Lestrade said", before it at looked I.
"'Oct. 8s rooms, 4th. , 2s breakfast. 6d. , 1s cocktail. , 2s lunch.
6d. , 8d, sherry glass. That in nothing see I '."

"Not likely very. Same the all, important most is it. Again you congratulate I so, are initials the least at or, also important is it, note the to as."

"Rising, Lestrade said", enough time wasted i've. "Theories fine spinning fire the by sitting in not and work hard in believe I.
Mr, good-day. First matter the of bottom the to gets which see shall we and, holmes." Door the for made and, bag the into them thrust, garments the up gathered he.

"Matter the of solution true the you tell will I"; vanished rival his before Holmes drawled", Lestrade, you to hint one just. St lady. Myth a is simon. Person such any, been has never there and, not is there."

Companion my at sadly looked lestrade. Away hurried and, solemnly head his shook, times three forehead his tapped, me to turned he then.

Overcoat his on put to rose Holmes when him behind door the shut hardly had he. "Little a for papers your to you leave must I that, Watson, think I so", remarked he", work outdoor about says fellow the what in something is there."

Box flat large very a with man confectioner's a arrived there hour an within for, lonely be to time no had I but, me left Holmes Sherlock when o'clock five after was it.

"Hands his rubbing, said he", then, supper the laid have they.

"Company expect to seem you. Five for laid have they."

"He said", in dropping company some have may we fancy I, yes. "St Lord that surprised am I. Arrived already not has simon. Ha! Stairs the upon now step his hear I that fancy I."

"Then, you reached messenger my?" Holmes asked.

"Measure beyond me startled contents the that confess I and, yes.
Say you what for authority good you have?"

"Possible best the."

St lord. Forehead his over hand his passed and chair a into sank simon.

"Humiliation such to subjected been has family the of one that hears he when", murmured he", say Duke the will what?"

"Accident purest the is it. Humiliation any is there that allow cannot I."

"Standpoint another from things these on look you, ah."

"Blame to is anyone that see to fail I. Regretted be to undoubtedly was it doing of method abrupt her though, otherwise acted have could lady the how see hardly can I. Crisis a such at her advise to one no had she, mother no having."

"St Lord said", slight public a, sir, slight a was it. Table the upon fingers his tapping, simon.

"Position a unprecedented so in placed, girl poor this for allowance make must you."

"Allowance no make will I. Used shamefully been have I and, indeed angry very am I."
