The adventure of the speckled band.

A small side door led into the whitewashed corridor. Inside there were doors for three bedrooms. Holmes wasn't interested in the third bedroom, so we went at once to the second room, where Miss Stoner was now sleeping - and in which her sister had died. It was a friendly little room, with a low ceiling and a wide fireplace, of the kind you often find in old country-houses. There was a brown chest of drawers in one corner, a small bed in another, and a dressing-table on the left-hand side of the window.
