Dear fellow Watsonians,
we didn’t receive a great response to the second “Appetizer” quiz. In fact, we only had one. I suppose that the Easter holidays kept many people away.
“An excess of frankness could make it sink. What?”
Answer: Sherlock Holmes’s “poor little reputation”.
«“I begin to think, Watson,” said Holmes, “that I make a mistake in explaining. ‘Omne ignotum pro magnifico,’ you know, and my poor little reputation, such as it is, will suffer shipwreck if I am so candid.”» (REDH, 177)
Congratulations to Cameron Brandon on behalf of The Sound of the Baskervilles who sent the only and correct answer.
See you for the next preliminary quiz. Happy Hunting!
