Sherlock Holmes rose and lit his pipe. “No doubt you think
that you are complimenting me in comparing me to Dupin,”
he observed. “Now, in my opinion, Dupin was a very inferior
fellow. That trick of his of breaking in on his friends'
thoughts with an apropos remark after a quarter of an hour's
silence is really very showy and superficial. He had some
analytical genius, no doubt; but he was by no means such
a phenomenon as Poe appeared to imagine.”<BR>
