"you will find your time very fully occupied"
In the opening of "The Norwood Builder," we find Watson back
in Baker Street—he sold his practice and has moved back in with
Sherlock Holmes. And we discover that it was Sherlock Holmes who
made the financial arrangements that made it possible for Dr.
Verner to purchase Watson's practice.
What's going on here? Did Holmes tacitly indicate that he
missed Watson and wanted his flatmate back? Was there a practical
side to the partnership as well? Was this Holmes's way of saying
that Watson was his ideal colleague and assistant? There are many
questions to be answered regarding this particular trifle.
