Doyle had been requested by his university to contribute a short piece of literature for a charity magazine. In the story, Watson has received a similar request and whilst he reads the letter at breakfast, Holmes correctly deduces the sender of the letter and Watson's thoughts with regard to the letter. It has many similarities with the canonical stories, most notably the metafictional twist in which Watson supplants Doyle as the author publishing his own stories in a magazine. It also plays not only about the famous skill of Holmes' observations producing apparently miraculous results, but also upon the notion of the "traditional breakfast scenes" which open many Holmes short stories. After the mystery is described in full, it is stated that a letter appeared in the press, giving a proposed solution from "an amateur reasoner of some celebrity".
Haining suggested that Doyle was "getting out some Holmes" during the series hiatus, but given the failure of the unnamed detective it appears he was parodying his most famous creation. It follows the same pattern; the mystery this time surrounds the appearance of a dead man in a railway carriage, with six pocket watches in his jacket. An explanation is offered by an amateur detective but the narrator notes it is flawed, as it doesn't take into account all the facts.
A man involved in the accidental murder of the victim writes a letter to the detective, saying that it was a "mighty clever solution" but entirely incorrect and continues to share the true events of that day.
It shares the same backing for categorising as a Sherlock Holmes story as "The Story of the Lost Special", and appears in French anthologies. The number of watches was changed because the new title came from a reference in the Holmes story " The Noble Bachelor " to Holmes' involvement with the watches incident.
Plot for Sherlock Holmes Story c. As Richard Lancelyn Green notes, "there is no evidence to show that it is by [Conan Doyle] and strong internal evidence to suggest that it's not". Conan Doyle wrote a short Sherlock Holmes story, just words long, onto the tiny pages of a specially constructed miniature book: "How Watson Learned the Trick".
Though written 28 years after "The Field Bazaar", this is almost a companion piece to that story.
Like "The Field Bazaar", this story is a breakfast scene, during which Watson attempts to mimic Holmes' style in guessing his thoughts. Watson's intuitions are proved wrong, however.
Unlike almost all parts of the Sherlock Holmes story it is written in the third person, presumably due to its length. Holmes is not present, but Watson is, in a very different form.
He acts discreditably and even marries another woman. It has many original parts which are not found in the short stories but borrows many events from the canonical adventures, namely " A Scandal in Bohemia " and " The Adventure of the Final Problem ".
It includes the very first mention of the phrase "Elementary, my dear Watson". Conan Doyle and Gillette later revised the play together; it has since been revised by others twice. It was first Published in the United States by the H.
