The Characters in The Hound Of The Baskervilles by Sherlock HolmesIn the first chapter we see how intelligent Sherlock Holmes is, heshows his intelligence through his examination of Dr Mortimer’swalking stick, it’s as if Holmes is a sleuth. ” I would suggest forexample that a presentation to a doctor’s more likely to come from ahospital than a hunt, and that when the entails C.C. are placed beforethat hospital the words Charing Cross very naturally suggeststhemselves.” This shows that Holmes is observant as he is intelligentbecause he worked out from just two initials Dr Mortimer’s occupation.But we also see how lazy Holmes is in this chapter he demonstratesthis by looking at the silver coffee pot and seeing what Watson wasdoing instead of turning around and looking at him,” Well, Watson,what do you make of it?” said Holmes, “Holmes was sitting to his backto me, and I had given him no sign of my occupation, how did you knowwhat I was doing?
