Part One: "The Singular Experience of Mr John Scott Eccles"

"Have just had most incredible and grotesque experience. May I consult you? — Scott Eccles, Post Office, Charing Cross"
―John Scott Eccles, by telegraph

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson receive a client named John Scott Eccles, who is beginning to tell the story of his recent "grotesque" experience when Inspector Tobias Gregson arrives, along with a comrade, Inspector Baynes of Surrey. It is soon revealed that the two have been following Eccles for a statement regarding the recent death of a man named Aloysius Garcia.

Eccles exhibits shock at hearing of Garcia's death. Gregson says that the police had found a letter in the dead man's pocket from Eccles, showing that he had intended to pass Garcia's house that night. Holmes suggests that since Gregson had wanted a statement from Eccles, he could stay and listen to the man's story, as he had been about to tell it just before the police had entered.
