  • It is a manuscript. pg 507
  • Yes, it is a statement of a certain legend which runs in the Baskerville family. pg 507
  • Dr Mortimer turned the manuscript to the light and read in a high, crackling voice the following curious, old world narrative: pg 507
  • "... this Manor of Baskerville was held by Hugo of that name. It chanced that this Hugo came to love the daughter of a yeoman... But the young maiden would ever avoid him, for she feared his evil name. pg 507
  • ... this Hugo,(with several men) stole down upon the farm and carried off the maiden... When they had brought her to the Hall the maiden was placed in an upper chamber...Now, the poor lass upstairs was like to have her wits turned at the terrible noise which came up to her from below. pg 507
  • At last in the stress of her fear she did that which might have daunted the bravest or most active man, for by the aid of the growth of ivy which covered the south wall she came down from under the eaves... he said that he indeed seen the unhappy maiden, with the hounds upon her track. pg 507, 508 Later the found the maid dead of fear and fatigue
  • It chanced that some little time later Hugo left his guests to carry food to his captive, and so found the cage empty and the bird escaped... and he cried aloud to the Powers of Evil if he might but overtake the maid.... for Hugo Baskerville passed me upon his black mere." pg 508
  • ... but it was that standing over Hugo, and plucking his throat, there stood a foul thing , a great , black beast, shaped like a hound, yet larger than any hound that ever mortal eye has rested upon. And even as they looked the thing tore the threat out of Hugo Baskerville... they shrieked with fear and rode for dear life... Such is the tale, my sons the coming of the hound which is said to have plagued the family so sorely ever since." pg 508
