the scene takes place in Sherlock's appartment
there are three characters: Holmes, Watson and Henry.
Henry was about to leave when Sherlock managed to make him
Indeed he explained what he did last night only with deduction.
Henry took the first train in the morning from Devon.
He had a disappointing breakfast with a cup of black coffee.
He met a girl in the train. He was anxious because he didn't have his
first cigarette of the day.
Sherlock is showing off!
How on earth did he notice that the man had the number of the girl written
on the train napkin full of coffee stains?
