  "A presentation, I see," said Holmes.
“是礼物吧,我想。”福尔摩斯说。
     "Yes, sir."
“是的,先生。”
     "From Charing Cross Hospital?"
“查林十字医院送的?”
     "From one or two friends there on the occasion of my marriage."
“那里的一两个朋友在我结婚时送的。”
     "Dear, dear, that's bad!" said Holmes, shaking his head.
“天哪,天哪,真不妙!”福尔摩斯摇着头说。
     Dr. Mortimer blinked through his glasses in mild astonishment.
摩梯墨医生的眼睛在镜片后面眨巴着,有点困惑。
     "Why was it bad?"
“怎么不妙了?”
     "Only that you have disarranged our little deductions. Your marriage, you say?"
“只是您打乱了我们的几个小推论。您说是您结婚的时候,是吗?”
     "Yes, sir. I married, and so left the hospital, and with it all hopes of a consulting practice. It was necessary to make a home of my own."
“是的,先生。我结婚了,就离开了医院,当顾问医生的事也泡汤了。不过我还是觉得,必须建立自己的家庭。”

     "Come, come, we are not so far wrong, after all," said Holmes. "And now, Dr. James Mortimer--"

“嗯,我们毕竟错得不离谱。”福尔摩斯说,“现在,詹姆斯·摩梯墨医生——”

     "Mister, sir, Mister--a humble M.R.C.S."
“先生,叫先生就可以了——我只是个卑微的皇家外科学院毕业生。”
     "And a man of precise mind, evidently."
“并且显然是一个头脑敏锐的人。”
     "A dabbler in science, Mr. Holmes, a picker up of shells on the shores of the great unknown ocean. I presume that it is Mr. Sherlock Holmes whom I am addressing and not--"
“一个半吊子科学家,福尔摩斯先生。在浩瀚的真理大海面前,我只是一个在海滩上捡贝壳的人。我觉得我是在跟歇洛克·福尔摩斯先生说话而不是——”
     "No, this is my friend Dr. Watson."
“不,这是我的朋友,华生医生。”
     "Glad to meet you, sir. I have heard your name mentioned in connection with that of your friend. You interest me very much, Mr. Holmes. I had hardly expected so dolichocephalic a skull or such well-marked supra-orbital development. Would you have any objection to my running my finger along your parietal fissure? A cast of your skull, sir, until the original is available, would be an ornament to any anthropological museum. It is not my intention to be fulsome, but I confess that I covet your skull."

“很高兴见到你,先生。我从你的几个朋友口中听过你的名字。福尔摩斯先生,我对您很感兴趣。我很难想象竟然有这样长的颅骨或者是发育得这样明显的眉棱骨。您介意我沿着您的顶骨缝隙摸一摸吗?先生,在得到实物之前,对于任何人类学博物馆来说,您的颅骨模型都是珍宝级的。我不是故意恭维您,但是我承认,我觊觎着您的颅骨。”
