This is the first of two chapters that are comprised of Watson's letters to Holmes. He notes, however, that one page is missing from the letter. This first letter is dated October 13th, written from Baskerville Hall. Watson begins by describing the effects the moor has on the soul: he feels about though he is amongst prehistoric man, rather than in modern England.
