I fear that Mr. Sherlock Holmes may become like one of those popular tenors who, having outlived their time, are still tempted to make repeated farewell bows to their indulgent audiences. This must cease and he must go the way of all flesh, material or imaginary. Perhaps in some humble corner of such a Valhalla, Sherlock and Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating Watson may for a time find a place, while some more astute sleuth with some even less astute comrade may fill the stage which they have vacated.
His career has been a long one—though it is possible to exaggerate it; decrepit gentlemen who approach me and declare that his adventures formed the reading of their boyhood Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating not meet the response from me which they seem to expect. As a matter of cold fact, Holmes made his debut in A Study in Scarlet and in The Sign of Four, two small booklets which appeared between and The public seemed appreciative and desirous of more, so that from that date, thirty-nine years ago, they have been produced in a broken series which now contains no than fifty-six stories, republished in The Adventures, The Memoirs, The Return, and His Last Bow, and there remain these twelve published during the last few years which are here produced under the title of The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes.
He began his adventures in the very heart of the later Victorian era, carried it through the all-too-short reign of Edward, and has Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating to hold his own niche even in these feverish days.
Thus it would
Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating true to say that those who first read of him, as young men, have lived to see their own grown-up children following the same adventures in the same magazine. It is a striking example of the patience and loyalty of the British public. I had fully determined at the conclusion of The Memoirs to bring Holmes to an end, as I felt that my literary energies should not be directed too much into one Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating. That pale, clear-cut face and loose-limbed figure were taking up an undue share of my imagination.
I did the deed, but fortunately no coroner had pronounced upon the remains, and so, after a long interval, it was not difficult for me to respond to the flattering demand and to explain my rash act away. I have never regretted it, for I have not in actual practice found that these lighter sketches have prevented me from exploring and finding my limitations in such varied branches of literature as history, poetry, historical novels, psychic research, and the drama.
Had Holmes never existed I could not have done more, though he may perhaps have stood a little in the way of the recognition of my more serious literary work. And so, reader, farewell to Sherlock Holmes! I thank you for your past constancy, and can but hope that some return has been made in the shape of that distraction from the worries of life and stimulating change of thought which can only be found in the fairy kingdom of romance.
Both Holmes and I had a weakness for the Turkish bath.
It was over a smoke in the pleasant lassitude of the drying-room that I have found him less reticent and Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating human than anywhere else. On the upper floor of the Northumberland Avenue establishment there is an isolated corner where two couches lie side by side, and it was on these that we lay upon September 3,the day when my narrative begins.
I had asked him anything was stirring, and for answer he had shot his long, thin, nervous arm out of the sheets which enveloped him and had drawn an envelope from the inside pocket of the coat which hung beside him. Sir James Damery presents his compliments to Mr.
Sherlock Holmes and will call upon him at 4: Sir James begs to say that the matter upon which he desires to consult Mr.
Holmes is very delicate and also very important. He trusts, therefore, that Mr. Holmes will make every effort to grant this interview, and that he will confirm it over the telephone to the Carlton Club. He has rather a reputation for arranging delicate matters which are to be kept out of the papers. He is a man of the world with a natural turn for diplomacy. I am bound, therefore, to hope that it is not a false scent and that he has some real need for our assistance.
Until then we can put the matter out of our heads. Sharp to the half-hour, Colonel Sir James Damery was announced. It is hardly necessary to describe him, for many will remember that large, bluff, personality, that broad, clean-shaven face, and, above all, that pleasant, mellow voice.
Frankness shone from his gray Irish eyes, and good humour played round his mobile, smiling lips. His lucent top-hat, his dark frock-coat, indeed, every detail, from the pearl Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating in the black satin cravat to the lavender spats over the varnished shoes, spoke of the meticulous care in dress for which he was famous.
The big, masterful aristocrat dominated the little room. Holmes, with a man to whom violence is familiar and who will, literally, stick at nothing. I Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating say that there is no more dangerous man in Europe. Then you will excuse me if I light my pipe. If your man is more dangerous than the late Professor Moriarty, or than the living Colonel Sebastian Moran, then he is indeed worth meeting.
May I ask his name? Colonel Damery threw up his kid-gloved hands with a laugh. So you have already sized him up as a murderer? It was a purely technical legal point and the suspicious death of a witness that saved him! I knew, also, that he had come to England and had a
Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating that sooner or later he would find me some work to do.
Well, what has Baron Gruner been up to? I presume it is not this old tragedy which has come up again? To revenge crime is important, but to prevent it is more so. It is a terrible thing, Mr. Holmes, to see a dreadful event, an atrocious situation, preparing itself before your eyes, to clearly understand whither it will lead and yet to be utterly "Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating" to avert it.
Can a human being be placed in a more trying position?
Holmes, I must beg you not to press that question. It is important that I should be able to assure him that his honoured name has been in no way dragged into the matter. "Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating" motives are, to the last degree, honourable and chivalrous, but he prefers to remain unknown. I need not say that your fees will be assured and that you will be given a perfectly free hand.
Surely the actual name of your client is immaterial? I fear, Sir James, that I must decline to act. Our visitor was greatly disturbed. His large, sensitive face was darkened with emotion and disappointment. May I, Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating least, lay all that I can before you? In the first place, you have no doubt heard of General de Merville? It is this daughter, this lovely, innocent girl, whom we are endeavouring to save from the clutches of a fiend. The fellow is, as you may have heard, extraordinarily handsome, with a most fascinating manner, a gentle voice, and that air of romance
Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating mystery which means so much to a woman.
He is said to have the whole sex at his mercy and to have made ample use of the fact. The company, though select, paid their own passages. The villain attached himself to the lady, and with such that he has completely and absolutely won her heart.
To say that she loves him hardly expresses it. She dotes upon him; she is obsessed by him. Outside of him there is nothing on earth. She will not hear one word against him. Everything has been done to cure her of her madness, but in vain.
To sum up, she proposes to marry him next month. As "Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating" is of age and has a will of iron, it is hard to know how to prevent her. She absolutely accepts his version and will listen to no other. But surely you have inadvertently let out the name of your client? It is no doubt General de Merville. Holmes, but it would not be true.
De Merville is a broken man. The strong soldier has been utterly demoralized by this incident. He has lost the nerve which never failed him on the battlefield and has become a weak, doddering old man, utterly incapable of contending with a brilliant, forceful rascal like this Austrian. My client, however, is an old friend, one who has known the General intimately for many years and taken a paternal interest in this young girl since she wore short frocks. He cannot see this tragedy consummated without some attempt to stop it.
There is nothing in which Scotland Yard can act. It was his own suggestion that you should be called in, but it was, as I have said, on the express stipulation that he should not be personally involved in the matter. I have no doubt, Mr. Holmes, with your great powers you could easily trace my client back through me, but I must ask you, as a point of honour, to refrain from doing so, and not to break in upon his incognito. How shall I keep in touch with you?
It is a large house. He has been fortunate in some rather shady speculations and is a rich man, which naturally makes him a more Sherlock holmes czytaj online dating antagonist.
He is a horse fancier. For a short time he played polo at Hurlingham, but then this Prague affair got noised about and he had to leave. He collects books and pictures. He is a man with a considerable artistic side to his nature. He is, I believe, a recognized authority upon Chinese pottery and has written a book upon the subject.
My old friend Charlie Peace was a violin virtuoso. Wainwright was no mean artist. I could quote many more. I can say no more. I have some sources of information of my own,
