Dr. Mortimer told about next. Sir Hugo Baskerville was an evil man. In 1643, he kidnapped a neighbour’s daughter and took her to Baskerville Hall. The girl managed to escape, but Sir Hugo and his friends chased her across the moor. The girl died of fear. Suddenly, they saw a huge black hound with eyes of fire. It killed Sir Hugo. He was the first Baskerville to die that way – but not the last. He added, that in June, Sir Charles Baskerville died. The hound killed him.
Dr. Watson made the remark, that story was frightening. Sherlock Holmes said, that it was interested, but it was only an old legend. He asked, what Dr. Mortimer wanted him to do. The later wanted him to protect Sir Henry Baskerville. He added, Sir Charles was a very rich man. His nephew, Sir Henry, would inherit all his money and property.
