Mr. Sherlock Holmes, who was usually very late in the mornings, save upon those not infrequent occasions when he was up all night, was seated at the breakfast table.

I stood upon the hearth-rug and picked up the stick which our visitor had left behind him the night before.

It was a fine, thick piece of wood, bulbous-headed, of the sort which is known as a Penang lawyer.

Just under the head was a broad silver band nearly an inch across.

To James Mortimer, M.R.C.S., from his friends of the C.C.H., was engraved upon it, with the date 1884.

It was just such a stick as the old-fashioned family practitioner used to carry - dignified, solid, and reassuring.
