Thank you for reading.

I have known Sherlock Holmes a long time, and lived with him for some time at his home in 221b Baker Street. But after I got married I of course moved into a house of my own, and carried on my work as a doctor from my surgery near Paddington Station.

Being one of London’s busiest train stations there were often accidents or people taken ill there that were sent to me for medical care, so I was often kept busy quite apart from my regular patients who came to my surgery.

So it was one day in the summer of 1889, when I was woken by my maid to tell me there was a patient in the consulting room needing my attention.

He had been brought there by a guard from Paddington Station. The man had arrived on an early train and asked the guard where he might find a doctor, so of course the guard had sent the man to me.

Little could I have imagined, as I entered the consulting room that morning, that as well as a medical case for me, this would be a mystery for Sherlock Holmes to solve.

As soon as I entered the room my eyes fell on the man’s right hand, for wrapped around it was a very blood-stained handkerchief. Other than this the man looked to have no other injuries, but he was very pale, which I thought might be due to blood loss.

“I’m sorry to wake you, doctor” the man said, “but I need medical care. My name is Hatherley. Victor Hatherley. Sorry I cannot shake your hand, but as you can see, I’m afraid I’ve lost my thumb.”
