VIII. Read the end of chapter 3 and translate new words.

The passenger saw us and ordered the driver to move away quickly.

‘It’s not important,’ Holmes told me. 'I took the driver’s number. I’ll talk to him later.’

When we arrived at Sir Henry’s hotel Sir Henry told us that someone had taken another of his shoes — this time one of an old pair. Holmes seemed interested in this piece of news but he did not say anything.

Sir Henry told us that he was going to Baskerville Hall.

‘You’re doing the right thing,’ Holmes encouraged him. ‘If someone is trying to hurt you, you’re safer there than in London.’

Then Holmes described the passenger in the taxi.

'Is there anyone at Baskerville Hall who has a black beard?’ he asked Dr Mortimer.                                                              

‘Only Barrymore, the butler,’ Dr Mortimer replied.

‘Good,’ said Holmes. 'I’ll send a telegram to the house to ask Barrymore if everything is ready for the arrival of Sir Henry. I’ll instruct the post office to give Barrymore his telegram personally. Then we’ll know if the butler is in London or at Baskerville Hall today!’

Then Holmes asked about the money that came to different people after the death of Sir Charles.

‘Barrymore and his wife received £500, and I received £1,000,’ the doctor explained. ‘The rest goes to Sir Henry — about £740,000!

‘It’s a lot of money,’ Holmes said thoughtfully. ‘Some people would kill for a fortune like that. What happens if Sir Henry dies? Where does the money go then?’

Mortimer gave a long explanation of the members of the Baskerville family.

‘Sir Charles had two brothers. Sir Henry is the only son of Sir Charles’s second brother. The third brother, Rodger, was a criminal. He ran away to South America in order to avoid the police in England. He died in South America. Therefore, if Sir Henry dies, everything goes to a cousin, James Desmond. James Desmond is an old man. He does not want to be rich.’

Now Sherlock Holmes gave Sir Henry some advice.

‘Go to Baskerville Hall tomorrow,' he said, 'but do not go there alone. I can’t come with you at the moment because I’m working on another case, but take Watson with you.’

Sir Henry and I were happy with Holmes’s suggestion.

‘Look!’ cried Sir Henry suddenly. 'This is one of the shoes that I couldn’t find before. It was under the table

‘It wasn’t there when we searched this room,’ Dr. Mortimer commented in surprise. Holmes and I returned to the Baker Street flat.

'Tell me about the passenger you had today,' Holmes told him.
‘The passenger with the black beard.’

me to
say nothing about what happened.’

That wasn’t very intelligent of him,’ Holmes commented.
What name did he give you?

‘Sherlock Holmes,’ the driver replied. ‘His name was Sherlock
Holmes.’
