Episode 358 – Pencils

Now, then, give him the pencil.” [GREE] 

Writing implements are a part of daily life. They are today and they were when Watson was writing the stories.

And from the very first story, Watson picks up a pencil to jot some notes. Where else do we find pencils, and how do they play into the importance of some of the Sherlock Holmes stories? It's just a Trifle.
