Holmes and Watson are back in the rooms at Baker Street chatting at the breakfast table.

They are interrupted by the furious ringing of the bell, a tremendous thumping upon the door followed by a pounding up the stairs and the bursting into the room of “…a wild-eyed and frantic young man, pale, disheveled, and palpitating…”

Our story for discussion is “The Adventure of the Norwood Builder” published in The Strand Magazine in November 1903 and in Collier’s in October 1903.
