Chapter I
Mr. Sherlock Holmes

Mr. Sherlock Holmes, who
(be)
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 (stand)
upon the hearth-rug and (pick up)
the stick which our visitor (leave)
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 (be)
a broad silver band nearly an inch across. "To James Mortimer, M.R.C.S., from his friends of the C.C.H.," was (engrave)
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.
"Well, Watson, what
(you, make)
of it?"
Holmes
(sit)
with his back to me, and I (give)
him no sign of my occupation.
"How
(you, know)
what I (do)
? I (believe)
you have eyes in the back of your head."
