2.  "A cipher message, Holmes."
3.  "'The stateroom was next the cabin, and we flocked in there andflopped down on the settees, all speaking together, for we were justmad with the feeling that we were free once more. There were lockersall round, and Wilson, the sham chaplain, knocked one of them in,and pulled out a dozen of brown sherry. We cracked off the necks ofthe bottles, poured the stuff out into tumblers, and were just tossingthem off when in an instant without warning there came the roar ofmuskets in our ears, and the saloon was so full of smoke that we couldnot see across the table. When it cleared again the place was ashambles. Wilson and eight others were wriggling on the top of eachother on the floor, and the blood and the brown sherry on that tableturn me sick now when I think of it. We were so cowed by the sightthat I think we should have given the job up if it had not been forPrendergast. He bellowed like a bull and rushed for the door withall that were left alive at his heels. Out we ran, and there on thepoop were the lieutenant and ten of his men. The swing skylights abovethe saloon table had been a bit open, and they had fired on us throughthe slit. We got on them before they could load, and they stood toit like men; but we had the upper hand of them, and in five minutes itwas all over. My God! was there ever a slaughter-house like that ship!Prendergast was like a raging devil, and he picked the soldiers upas if they had been children and threw them overboard alive or dead.There was one sergeant that was horribly wounded and yet kept onswimming for a surprising time until someone in mercy blew out hisbrains. When the fighting was over there was no one left of ourenemies except just the warders, the mates, and,the doctor."'It was over them that the great quarrel arose. There were manyof us who were glad enough to win back our freedom, and yet who had nowish to have murder on our souls. It was one thing to knock thesoldiers over with their muskets in their hands, and it was another tostand by while men were being killed in cold blood. Eight of us,five convicts and three sailors, said that we would not see it done.But there was no moving Prendergast and those who were with him. Ouronly chance of safety lay in making a clean job of it, said he, and hewould not leave a tongue with power to wag in a witness-box. It nearlycame to our sharing the fate of the prisoners, but at last he saidthat if we wished we might take a boat and go. We jumped at the offer,for we were already sick of these bloodthirsty doings, and we saw thatthere would be worse before it was done. We were given a suit ofsailor togs each, a barrel of water, two casks, one of junk and one ofbiscuits, and a compass. Prendergast threw us over a chart, told usthat we were shipwrecked mariners whose ship had foundered in Lat. 15'and Long. 25' west, and then cut the painter and let us go."'And now I come to the most surprising part of my story, my dearson. The seamen had hauled the fore-yard aback during the rising,but now as we left them they brought it square again, and as there wasa light wind from the north and east the bark began to draw slowlyaway from us. Our boat lay, rising and falling, upon the long,smooth rollers, and Evans and I, who were the most educated of theparty, were sitting in the sheets working out our position andplanning what coast we should make for. It was a nice question, forthe Cape Verdes were about five hundred miles to the north of us,and the African coast about seven hundred to the east. On the whole,as the wind was coming round to the north, we thought that SierraLeone might be best and turned our head in that direction, the barkbeing at that time nearly hull down on our starboard quarter. Suddenlyas we looked at her we saw a dense black cloud of smoke shoot upfrom her, which hung like a monstrous tree upon the sky-line. A fewseconds later a roar like thunder burst upon our ears, and as thesmoke thinned away there was no sign left of the Gloria Scott. In aninstant we swept the boat's head round again and pulled with all ourstrength for the place where the haze still trailing over the watermarked the scene of this catastrophe.
4.  "If Elsie dies, I care nothing what becomes of me," said theAmerican. He opened one of his hands, and looked at a note crumpled upin his palm. "See here, mister! he cried, with a gleam of suspicion inhis eyes, "you're not trying to scare me over this, are you? If thelady is hurt as bad as you say, who was it that wrote this note?" Hetossed it forward on to the table.
5.  "Well," said I, "you call that love, Mr. Carruthers, but I shouldcall it selfishness."
6.  "Well, you can hear what I say, anyhow. Listen now! Can you rememberany unusual incident in your life just about the time your symptomsbegan?"


1.  So it proved; for in the morning I found my friend standing on thehearthrug with his back to the fire and a smile of completesatisfaction upon his face.
2.  "Excellent, Warner!" cried Holmes, springing to his feet. "Watson,the gaps are closing rapidly."
3.  "Not more than two miles to the Hall gates. That's the road to theleft." He watched us with sullen eyes until we had left his premises.We did not go very far along the road, for Holmes stopped theinstant that the curve hid us from the landlord's view."We were warm, as the children say, at that inn," said he. "I seemto grow colder every step that I take away from it. No, no, I can'tpossibly leave it."
4.  "'As governess?'
5.  "Yes," she said at last, "I had a feeling that there was somethingon his mind."
6.  "No, it is more serious than that. To revenge crime is important,but to prevent it is more so. It is a terrible thing, Mr. Holmes, tosee a dreadful event, an atrocious situation, preparing itselfbefore your eyes, to clearly understand whither it will lead and yetto be utterly unable to avert it. Can a human being be placed in amore trying position?"


1.  "Well, gentlemen, you have the drop on me this time. I seem tohave knocked up against something hard. But I came here in answer to aletter from Mrs. Hilton Cubitt. Don't tell me that she is in this?Don't tell me that she helped to set a trap for me?"
2.  "'Ah!' said he carelessly, 'we have our own process. We compress theearth into bricks, so as to remove them without revealing what theyare. But that is a mere detail. I have taken you fully into myconfidence now, Mr. Hatherley, and I have shown you how I trustyou.' He rose as he spoke. 'I shall expect you, then, at Eyford at11:15.'
3.  "Yes, I think he was. I know that so far as those three keys areconcerned he kept them on the same ring. I have often seen themthere."
4.  "That is the problem which we have to solve," Holmes answered,"and for my part I shall set about it by presuming that my reasoningis correct and that a double murder has been committed. One of theseears is a woman's, small, finely formed, and pierced for an earring.The other is a man's, sun-burned, discoloured, and also pierced for anearring. These two people are presumably dead, or we should have heardtheir story before now. To-day is Friday. The packet was posted onThursday morning. The tragedy, then, occurred on Wednesday or Tuesday,or earlier. If the two people were murdered, who but their murdererwould have sent this sign of his work to Miss Cushing? We may takeit that the sender of the packet is the man whom we want. But hemust have some strong reason for sending Miss Cushing this packet.What reason then? It must have been to tell her that the deed wasdone! or to pain her, perhaps. But in that case she knows who it is.Does she know? I doubt it. If she knew, why should she call the policein? She might have buried the ears, and no one would have been thewiser. That is what she would have done if she had wished to shieldthe criminal. But if she does not wish to shield him she would givehis name. There is a tangle here which needs straightening out." Hehad been talking in a high, quick voice, staring blankly up over thegarden fence, but now he sprang briskly to his feet and walked towardsthe house.
5.   "I was recalled to myself by a frantic plucking at my wrist, and Ifound myself lying upon the stone floor of a narrow corridor, whilea woman bent over me and tugged at me with her left hand, while sheheld a candle in her right. It was the same good friend whosewarning I had so foolishly rejected.
6.  "She is ill, but she is quite rational."


1.  "It sounds plausible."
2.  "But he wrote it in your presence." "Yes, sir. I was standing bythe door, and he with his back turned to that table. When he hadwritten it, he said: 'All right, porter, I will take this myself.'""What did he write it with?"
3.  "Certainly I owe you an explanation, and you shall have it. Butyou will permit me to handle the matter in my own way? Is the ladycapable of seeing us, Watson?"
4、  "How do you know?"
5、  "And then there was another thing. It comes back to me now as Ithink it over. There was some evidence that just at the time thelion roared and the woman screamed, a man began shouting in terror.""This man Ronder, no doubt."
