Watson & ACD Agree on Russell

Dr. Watson, like ACD, enjoyed William Clark Russell as this famous quote

from the beginning of The Five Orange Pips proves —

“Sherlock Holmes sat moodily at one side of the fireplace cross-indexing his

records of crime, while I at the other was deep in one of Clark Russell’s fine sea-stories

until the howl of the gale from without seemed to blend with the text, and the splash

of the rain to lengthen out into the swash of the sea waves.”
