Holmes and I are discussing a visitor, Dr James Mortimer, who we missed the previous night. He had left his walking stick (missing from the picture) and I was using Holmes’ methods of deduction to work out the character of our visitor.
I got a couple of things right, but most of it wrong as Holmes delighted in pointing out...
“I am afraid, my dear Watson, that most of your conclusions were erroneous. When I said that you stimulated me I meant, to be frank, that in noting your fallacies I was occasionally guided towards the truth. Not that you are entirely wrong in this instance. The man is certainly a country practitioner. And he walks a good deal."
The story centres around Sir Henry Baskerville and Baskerville Hall.
The artefact we chose from this adventure was a pair of boots owned by Sir Henry because they are one clue that helped Sherlock Holmes solve this mystery.
