EMPT: Watson: "There were points about this strange business which would, I was sure, have specially appealed to him [Holmes], and the efforts of the police would have been supplemented, or more probably anticipated, by the trained observation adn the alert mind of the first criminal agent in Europe."
HOUN: Dr. Mortimer believed that Holmes was the second highest expert in Europe (He thought that Monsieur Bertillon appeals more strongly "to the man of precisely scientific mind."), but in matters of practical affairs Holmes stands alone.
REDC: Leverton noted that Gorgiano's notoriety reached to Europe as well as New York.
SECO: Bellinger:"There, Mr. Holmes, you take me into regions of high international politics. But if you consider the European situation you will have no difficulty in perceiving the motive. The whole of Europe is an armed camp. There is a double league which makes a fiar balance of military power. Great Britain holds the scales. If Britain were driven into war with one confederacy, it would assure the supremacy of the oother confederacy, where they joined in the war or not. Do you follow?"
