 "Mortimer, James, M.R.C.S., 1882, Grimpen, Dartmoor, Devon. House-surgeon, from 1882 to 1884, at Charing Cross Hospital. Winner of the Jackson prize for Comparative Pathology, with essay entitled 'Is Disease a Reversion?' Corresponding member of the Swedish Pathological Society. Author of 'Some Freaks of Atavism' (Lancet 1882). 'Do We Progress?' (Journal of Psychology, March, 1883). Medical Officer for the parishes of Grimpen, Thorsley, and High Barrow."
“詹姆斯·摩梯墨,M.R.C.S.,1882,德文郡达特摩尔地区格林盆人。1882至1884年,于查林十字医院任见习外科医生。论文《论疾病是否隔代遗传》获杰克逊比较病理学奖。瑞典病理学会通信会员。论文:《隔代遗传畸形例举》,《柳叶刀》1882;《我们进步了吗?》,《心理学通讯》,1883年3月。现任格林盆、索斯利、上巴罗教区医务主任。”
     "No mention of that local hunt, Watson," said Holmes with a mischievous smile, "but a country doctor, as you very astutely observed. I think that I am fairly justified in my inferences. As to the adjectives, I said, if I remember right, amiable, unambitious, and absent-minded. It is my experience that it is only an amiable man in this world who receives testimonials, only an unambitious one who abandons a London career for the country, and only an absent-minded one who leaves his stick and not his visiting-card after waiting an hour in your room."
“没提到狩猎协会呀,华生。”福尔摩斯淘气地笑着,“但确实是一个乡村医生,就像你敏锐地观察到的那样。但是我仍然相信我的推测是很合理的。至于对他的形容,我记得我说过他和蔼可亲、没有野心、粗心大意。根据我的经验,这世上只有和蔼可亲的人会收到礼物,只有没有野心的人会放弃在伦敦的工作到乡下去,并且只有粗心大意的人才会在等了一个小时之后还不留名片,只把手杖落在了这里。”
     "And the dog?"
“那狗呢?”
     "Has been in the habit of carrying this stick behind his master. Being a heavy stick the dog has held it tightly by the middle, and the marks of his teeth are very plainly visible. The dog's jaw, as shown in the space between these marks, is too broad in my opinion for a terrier and not broad enough for a mastiff. It may have been--yes, by Jove, it is a curly-haired spaniel."

“这只狗已经养成了习惯,咬着手杖跟在主人身后。手杖很重,狗就紧紧咬住它的中间。你看,牙印很清晰。从牙印的间距来看,这只狗的下颌比小型犬要宽,但是与獒相比还不够宽。可能是一只——对了,哎呀,一定是一只卷毛的西班牙猎犬。”


(吐槽:为什么我觉得《巴斯克维尔的猎犬》里福尔摩斯和华生的基情发展到了一个新的高度……)
