Scene from chapter one of hound of the baskervilles
I would suggest for example, that a presentation to a doctor is more likely to come from a hospital than from a hunt, and then the initials C.C are placed before the hospital the words Charing Cross very naturally suggest themselves pg 504
I think that Dr.Mortimer is a successful elderly medical man, well esteemed, since those who know him give him this mark of their appreciation pg 503
Good! Excellent! pg 503
On what occasion would it be most probable that such a presentation would be made? Obviously at the moment when Dr. Mortimer withdrew from the service of the hospital. He possesses a dog, which i should describe roughly as being larger than a terrier and smaller than a mastiff pg 504-505
I think that the probability is in favor of his being a country practitioner who does a great deal of his visiting on foot pg 503-504
Why so? pg 504
As for the letter part, I have no means of checking you, but at least it is not difficult to find out a few particulars about the man's age and professional career pg 505
Because this stick, though originally a very handsome one, has been so knocked about that I can hardly bimagine that a town practitioner carrying it. The thick iron ferrule is worn down, so it is evident that he has done a great amount of walking with it pg 504
Perfectly sound! pg 504
You may be right. Well, then, supposing that C.C.H does stand for Charing Cross Hospital, what further inferences may we draw?
