A curious incident

Illustration for Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventure of Silver Blaze (1891) by Sidney Paget: see post of 16/9/19

We had been poised to alight from the train when we saw the signs for Farnborough (Main) flash by. We expressed protests – mutedly, it was early – then listened as the guard offered an apologetic explanation: “The driver was not aware…the signalman was not aware…”

Inspector Gregory: “Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?’

Sherlock Holmes: “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.’

Inspector Gregory: “The dog did nothing in the night-time.’

‘That was the curious incident,’ remarked Sherlock Holmes.”
