In the next morning Dr. Watson asked Mr. Barrymore after the sobbing last night. It was his wife, Mrs. Barrymore. He questioned the postmaster about the delivery of the telegram. He confirmed that his son, James, handed the telegram to Mrs. Barrymore, because Mr. Barrymore was engaged in the attic. Dr. Watson decided to go for a walk. Suddenly he heard a voice behind him, it was Mr. Stapleton with his net. They were talking about the death of Sir Charles Baskerville, but mostly about the dangerous moor. A pony ran across the moor, directly into a swamp. It drowned with a miserable cry. Suddenly they heard a loud cry of a dog. Stapleton told to Watson the legend of the Hound of the Baskervilles. At once a rare Cyclopides flew by and Stapleton ran behind him. Soon came Miss Stapleton and warned Watson, because she kept him for Sir Henry, to stay here before. She was afraid to him. When the misunderstanding was cleared up, Dr. Watson was invited to the Stapletons, but before the dinner, he returned to Sir Henry.
