One who today readsThe Aristocrat Of The Breakfast Table may well recall the remark of Henry James, Sr., "Holmes was not only intellectually alive, he was alive in all fields of thought as a man of science who was a man of rhymes, one of those people he spoke of 'who know something about almost everything and never make a mistake.'" Mingles miscellaneous facts nd fanies, and whih crackles with wit and gaiety.
