    Summary

    Raffles tugged experimentally at the chain, taking no notice of my fixation. “Yes, that’s good,” he said. “Quite sturdy. I shouldn’t have a hope of escape.”

    Summary

    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 more 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...

    - The Illustrious Client (1924)

    “But why Turkish?” asked Mr. Sherlock Holmes. [...] "Why the relaxing and expensive Turkish rather than the invigorating home-made article?”

    - Lady Frances Carfax (1911)

    There are good reasons.

    Summary

    It is my custom, you may have noticed, to save those little cases which we have solved until such time as danger to those involved has passed, or until Holmes otherwise suggests I may write about them.

    The happenings at Hurlstone Hall, however, received a very different treatment indeed.

    Summary

    It is generally known what happened the day Captain Hornblower said goodbye to his crew and to Hotspur. It is somewhat less well known what happened two days prior-- when he said goodbye to his first lieutenant and Hotspur on more intimate terms. (Or: in which Bush and Hornblower slide down the slippery slopes of sentiment.)
