Strange Random Dr. Watson Quote:
“I am inclined to think — ” said I.
“I should do so,” Sherlock Holmes remarked impatiently.
I believe that I am one of the most long-suffering of mortals; but I’ll admit that I was annoyed at the sardonic interruption.
“Really, Holmes,” said I severely, you are a little trying at times.”
(The Valley of Fear, 1915)
