Detective Sherlock Holmes quote

Here is another message that has been gathering dust in a “draft” file.

Here is the quote (I think):

“You will not apply my precept,” he said, shaking his head. “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth? We know that he did not come through the door, the window, or the chimney. We also know that he could not have been concealed in the room, as there is no concealment possible. When, then, did he come?”

The Sign of the Four, ch. 6 (1890), Sherlock Holmes in The Sign of the Four (Doubleday p. 111)

Cousin Leland sent this weeks ago (months ago) when I wrote about one of my “detective” Ancestry projects. I failed to “save” it and had to request it–late August.
