This is where the young mans body lay, said he, indicating a spotabout three feet from the metals. It could not have fallen fromabove, for these, as you see, are all blank walls. Therefore, it couldonly have come from a train, and that train, so far as we can traceit, must have passed about midnight on Monday. The value of thy gifts I know aright!Those treasures in my breast for others dwell,
Three days later we were back in Baker Street together; but it wasevident that my friend would be much the better for a change, andthe thought of a week of springtime in the country was full ofattractions to me also. My old friend, Colonel Hayter, who had comeunder my professional care in Afghanistan, had now taken a housenear Reigate in Surrey and had frequently asked me to come down to himupon a visit.

It was mere chance; the subject on which we had been reading hadinterested me. This afternoon, instead of dreaming of Deepden, I waswondering how a man who wished to do right could act so unjustly andunwisely as Charles the First sometimes did; and I thought what a pityit was that, with his integrity and conscientiousness, he could see nofarther than the prerogatives of the crown. If he had but been able tolook to a distance, and see how what they call the spirit of the agewas tending! Still, I like Charles I respect him I pity him, poormurdered king! Yes, his enemies were the worst: they shed blood theyhad no right to shed. How dared they kill him!
