    Question Mrs. Watson

    I'm reading The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes and I have found that Mrs. Watson has disappeared from the book. After Sherlock is thought to be dead three years later he comes back and Watson moves back in with him??? Did I read that correctly? What did I miss?

    Smile I've found it!

    In The Adventure of the Empty House, the first story after Holmes' return (he had been thought dead for three years), Watson states that "Holmes had while away learned of my own sad bereavement and his sympathy was shown through his manner rather than in his words." This indicates that Watson has lost someone significant to death, almost certainly his wife; that fact is confirmed when he moves back to Baker Street to share lodgings with Holmes, as he had done as a bachelor.

    I found this on Wikipedia!
