On glancing over my notes of the seventy odd cases in which I have during the last eight years studied the methods of my friend Sherlock Holmes I find many tragic some comic a large number merely strange but none commonplace for working as he did rather for the love of his art than for the acquirement of wealth he refused to associate himself with any investigation which did not tend towards the unusual and even the fantastic Of all these varied cases however I cannot recall any which presented more singular features than that which was associated with the well-known Surrey family of the Roylotts of Stoke Moran The events in question occurred in the early days of my association with Holmes when we were sharing rooms as bache- lors in Baker Street It is possible that I might have placed them upon record before but a promise of secrecy was made at the time from which I have only been freed during the last month by the untimely death of the lady to whom the pledge was given It is perhaps as well that the facts should now come to light for I have reasons to know that there are widespread rumours as to the death of Dr Grimesby Roylott which tend to make the matter even more terrible than the truth It was early in April in the year 83 that I woke one morning to find Sherlock Holmes standing fully dressed by the side of my bed He was a late riser as a rule and as the clock on the mantelpiece showed me that it was only a quarter-past seven I blinked up at him in some surprise and perhaps just a little resentment for I was myself regular in my habits Very sorry to knock you up Watson said he but its the common lot this morning Mrs Hudson has been knocked up she retorted upon me
