As the narrator of this story, Watson then describes the telegrams he's sent to Holmes so far.
The first telegram reports that it looks like Selden (the psychotic killer) has left the area.
Anyway, no one's seen him, which is a big relief.
Watson has also noticed signs that Sir Henry is totally falling for Beryl Stapleton.
Weird, though—you'd think Stapleton would be happy to have his sister marry the local rich guy.
But in fact, Stapleton seems to be trying to find ways to keep Beryl and Sir Henry apart.
Watson also mentions another neighbor: Mr. Frankland of Lafter Hall.
He's a litigious (lawsuit-loving) old man interested in astronomy who has a telescope on his roof.
These days, Mr. Frankland spends a fair amount of his time scanning the moors with his telescope looking for Selden the murderer.
And now, for the last bit of news: weird stuff has been happening with the Barrymores.
Watson told Sir Henry that Barrymore may not have received the telegram Holmes sent from London himself.
So Sir Henry asks Barrymore if he read the telegram and replied to it himself.
He answers that, since he was busy, he let his wife answer.
Later on in the day, Barrymore asks if Sir Henry suspects him of something.
Sir Henry says no, and offers Barrymore some of his used clothes to prove his faith in him.
Sir Henry's lost 75 lbs. on Jenny Craig, and anyway now that he's a baronet, he needs classier clothes. (A baronet is a pretty low rank in the British aristocracy. Sir Henry inherited the title when Sir Charles died.)
Watson can't forget that first night when he heard Mrs. Barrymore sobbing. He's seen signs of crying on her face several times since then.
Watson's suspicions of Barrymore have only gotten worse since a strange incident the night before.
At around two in the morning, Watson heard someone sneaking around outside his room.
He woke up and looked out to see Barrymore creeping along the hallway to an empty room.
Watson watched Barrymore standing in front of a window with a lamp in his hand.
Barrymore stared out onto the moor for several minutes before groaning and putting out the light.
