- Holmes pushed open the door of the private bar and ordered two glasses of beer from the ruddy-faced, white-aproned landlord

- If my father did but drink a cup of small beer more than his wont, or did break out upon provocation into any fond oath, as "Od's niggers!" or "Heart alive!" he would mourn over it as though it were the seven deadly sins.
