      I agree, I had some difficulty with the ‘feeble’ concerning Holmes’s violin playing. My general impression from the Conan Doyle stories is Watson was not especially keen to be around when Holmes whiled away some hours on the Strad.


      With best wishes

      - 1. Didn't know where AC is buried. Need to revisit the biography of the author again.


      - 14. Dispute. "Feeble" is the adjective Watson uses to describe Holmes' knowledge of politics. On the other hand, Holmes actually "plays the violin well". Differentiating between "well" and "wonderfully well" is nitpicking.
