You remember, said he, "that some little time ago when I read you the passage in one of Poe's sketches in which a close reasoner follows the unspoken thoughts of his companion, you were inclined to treat the matter as a mere tour-de-force of the author. On my remarking that I was constantly in the habit of doing the same thing you expressed incredulity."

4.0 von 5 Sternen Solid Holmes story 27. Mai 2012
Von morehumanthanhuman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you have the The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, you already have this 1892 story. It's an enjoyable short story involving a woman who receives a mystery package containing two ears. Whose ears are they? Why were they sent to this particular woman? Who sent them? It's all for Holmes to figure out (with assistance from Watson).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not one of my favorite of Doyle's by still very good. 28. Februar 2014
Von T. Hindes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
One of the more quicker tales delving into the inner workings of the mind of man. Sad tale of how jealousy and drink can lead to the downfall of not only the drinker, but those around him. Also touches into you get more than you bargain for sometimes when you interfere in the lives of others. A dark tale without getting to gruesome, a classic tale well worth reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good read as ever for a Holmes case. 1. Januar 2014

I am always in awe of how he deduces things from what would seem trivial to us. The story moved quickly and he was spot on in solving it. I would recommend this to all Holmes fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Gruesome Packet 29. Mai 2013
Von Scrapple8 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
`The Adventure of the Cardboard Box' was written in 1893, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle left this case out of many versions of the second collection of cases of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

Holmes is called on the case by Inspector Lestrade, who was contacted by Susan Cushing because she received a gruesome packet in the mail. Ironically, it was not the gruesome nature of the packet but the inference behind the crime that made this case controversial.

Doyle hinted at adultery early on in the case, when Sherlock Holmes used a painting of Henry Ward Beecher to deduce the thoughts of Dr. Watson. Beecher was the pastor of the Plymouth Church in Brooklyn Heights who was involved in a highly publicized trial for adultery in 1875. Beecher was also a notable abolitionist whose sister, Harriet Beecher Stowe, wrote the novel Uncle Tom's Cabin.

Readers may notice the same anecdote in `The Resident Patient' of The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. The original version of The Resident Patient published in Strand did not contain the Gordon/Beecher anecdote. When Doyle decided that the Cardboard Box was too controversial for younger readers, he omitted the case in The Memoirs and wove the anecdote into the version of 'The Resident Patient' that was published in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

Holmes used the tarred twine and knot used to secure the package, as well as the course salt used as filler, to deduce the nature of the criminal. There was also something in the profile of Susan Cushing, the lady who received the gruesome packet, which helped Holmes discover a detail regarding the contents of that package.

The inference of adultery becomes clear when one reads the testimony of Jim Browner to Inspector Montgomery, furnished at the end of the case. `The Cardboard Box' is the second case of the eight cases published in His Last Bow, a collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories published in 1917.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining 6. Januar 2015
Von Roberto Mattos - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
In this story, Miss Susan Cushing of Croydon receives a parcel in the post that contains two severed human ears packed in coarse salt. Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard suspects a prank by three medical students whom Miss Cushing was forced to evict because of their unruly behaviour. The parcel was sent from Belfast, the city of origin of one of the former boarders. Upon examining the parcel himself, Holmes is convinced that it is evidence of a serious crime. He reasons that a medical student with access to a dissection laboratory would likely use something other than plain salt to preserve human remains, and would be able to make a more precise cut than the roughly hacked ears suggest. The address on the package, roughly written and with a spelling correction, suggests to Holmes that the sender lacks education and is unfamiliar with Croydon. The knot in the string suggests to Holmes that they are looking for someone with sailing experience.
Holmes considers the solution so simple that he asks Lestrade not to mention his name in connection with it. A few simple questions to Miss Cushing, a few observations, a cable to Liverpool, and a visit to Miss Cushing's sister Sarah (Holmes was denied admittance by the doctor because she was having a "brain fever") convince Holmes that the ears belong to Miss Cushing's other sister, Mary, and her extramarital lover, and that they have been murdered. He is convinced that Mary's estranged husband, Jim Browner, is the murderer, and that Browner had sent the cardboard box containing the ears to the Cushing's house in Croydon (addressing it merely to "S. Cushing"), not realizing that Sarah was no longer resident there. Browner, who is an unpleasant man when drunk, had meant to horrify Sarah (rather than Susan) because he blamed Sarah for causing the trouble that culminated in his murder of his wife and her lover.
Browner is indeed a sailor, and Belfast was the first port where he had the chance to post the parcel. Lestrade, acting on Holmes's information, is waiting to arrest him when his ship reaches London. He confesses everything. He is presented with considerable sympathy, a simple man so tormented by guilt at his act that he would welcome being hanged. The real villain of the story - morally if not legally - is Sarah Cushing, who tried to seduce Browner herself and, when he rejected her advances, set out to wreck his marriage with her sister Mary.

Another very well written story, I recommend this one to all readers that appreciate a good mystery, mainly featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.
