STUD: Stamford introduces Watson to Holmes in the chemical laboratory.
Watson: "...we turned down a narrow lane and passed through a small side-door, which opened into a wind of the great hospital. It was fmailiar ground to me, and I needed no guiding as we ascended the bleak stone staircase and made our way down the long corridor with its vista of whitewashed wall and dun-coloured dorrs. Near the farther end a low arched passage branched away from it and led to the chemical laboratory.
It was a lofty chamber, lined and littered with countless bottles. Broad, low tables were scattered about, which birsted with retorts, test-tubes, and little bunsen lamps, with their blue flickering flames. There wa sonly one student in the room, who was bending over a distant talbe absorbed in his work. At the sound of our steps he glanced round and sprang to his feet with a cry of pleasure. 'I have found it! I have found it!' he shouted to my companion."
