Dr Watson’s Page

In the debut Sherlock Holmes story A Study in Scarlet, Dr Watson, as the narrator, describes meeting Holmes, their subsequent sharing of rooms at 221B Baker Street, his attempts to discover the profession of his taciturn companion, Holmes’s eventual taking of Watson into his confidence, and the events surrounding their first case together. Watson describes Holmes and his methods in too romantic and sentimental a manner for Holmes’ taste. In time, they become close friends.
