Here is a dear, a true-industrious friend,
Sir Walter Blunt, new lighted from his horse,
Stained with variation of each soil
Betwixt that Holmedon and this seat of ours,..
(King Henry IV, I, 1)
Не отсюда ли зародилась у Холмса его знаменитая идея?
"...аfter walks has shown me splashes upon his trousers, and told me by their colour and consistence in what part of London he had received them."
(The Study in Scarlet)
