What did Watson do twice as often as Holmes?
“And so he sat as I dropped off to sleep, when a sudden ejaculation caused me to wake up!”
Watson ejaculates 11 times, and Holmes on one occasion refers to Watson`s……….. “ejaculations of wonder being invaluable to his art”.
There is a fellow called Phelps from the story The Naval Treaty who ejaculates 3 times; the only other ejaculator is Mrs Sinclair`s husband, who ejaculates from a 2nd floor window.
To ejaculate is a quaint old English language term, meaning to exclaim, and Holmes and Watson did tend to ejaculate quite frequently when overcome by the excitement of the chase.
Glad that`s been sorted then.
