The Return of Sherlock Holmes  -  Arthur Conan Doyle

"Let me say to that public which has shown some interest in those glimpses which I have occasionally given them of the thoughts and actions of a very rearkable man that they are not to blame me if I have not shared my knowledge with them, for I should have considered it my first duty to have done so had I not been barred by a positive prohibition from his own lips, which was only withdrawn upon the third of last month."

The Empty House


Translation: I would love nothing more than to tell the world in detail how much I love him, but Holmes has asked me not to. It took me this long to convince him to let me tell you all. Let's gossip. Signed: John Watson, MD.
