The Measure of a Gentleman
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a partner.

Less universally acknowledged is that a single man in possession of very little in the way of fortune may be in want of a partner as well, but John Watson had little time or energy to devote to his own wants or needs.

 He was my best friend and I’ll always believe in him.

 She taught him that--how to leave your lover with nothing but a single brutal sentence--a cruelty he would never have dreamed of if she hadn't carved it into him a year ago.
