The adventure of the speckled band

"Yes, sir, that is the house of Dr. Grimesby Roylott," said the driver.

"Someone is building there," said Holmes; "that is where we are going."

"There's the village," said the driver. He pointed to some roofs on the left. "But if you want to go to the house, it is quicker to go over this fence, and to the foot-path over the fields. There it is, where the lady is walking."

"And the lady, I think, is Miss Stoner," said Holmes, looking carefully. "Yes, I think we had better do as you say."

We got off. We paid the driver, and the carriage went back to Leatherhead.
