Neville's Turkish Bath. "Both Holmes and I had a weakness for the Turkish Bath. It was over a smoke in the plasant lassitude of the drying-room that I found him less reticent and more human than anywhere else. On the upper floor of the Northumberland Avenue establishment there is a solid corner where two couches lie side by side." - as told by Dr. Watson.
