The Six Napoleons

I am not trying to explain it. I am just saying that this man might be acting strangely, but he is also being logical at the same time. For example, in Dr. Barnicot's house, a sound might wake up the family. So here the bust was taken outside before being broken. In the surgery, where there was less danger of someone hearing, it was smashed where it stood. I know none of this seems very important. However, I can't call anything unimportant because some of my most interesting cases have started in a very uninteresting way.
