Next morning Holmes was up early and had disappeared somewhere, but was back for breakfast.
    "Good morning, Holmes," said Sir Henry. "You look like a general who is planning a battle."
    "That's just so. Watson is waiting for orders."
    "And so am I."
    "Very good. I understand that you're invited to dine with your friends the Stapletons tonight."
    "I hope you'll come too. They are very nice people."
    "I fear that Watson and I must go to London."
    "To London?"
    "Yes, I think we'll be more useful there at present."
