    By the school house at Shancarrig stands a copper Beech, its bark scarred with the names and dreams of the pupils who have grown up under its branches. Under Junior Assistant Mistress Maddy Ross's careful gaze the children play, but out of school Maddy's gaze lingers where it shouldn't. Maura Brennan, a bundle of fun from the rough end of town, plays with her pals.

    Holmes está molesto y así se lo comunica a Watson, porque los asuntos que últimamente les han llegado para su resolución son de una nimiedad que no los hace acreedores de la profesionalidad del trabajo de investigación de Sherlock. - Fíjate Watson, nos acaba de pedir consejo una tal señorita Hunter sobre si debe o no aceptar o no un empleo de niñera. Es simplemente ridículo que nos molesten con estas tonterías.

    In "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches", Violet Hunter asks Sherlock Holmes whether she should accept a job with very strange conditions. She has been offered £120 per year as a governess, but only if she will cut her long hair short. This is only one of many peculiar conditions to which she must agree. The employer, Jephro Rucastle, seems pleasant enough, yet Miss Hunter obviously has her suspicions. After a fortnight, Miss Hunter beseeches Holmes to come and see her in Winchester, as the situation has become even stranger. This is the last of the 12 stories collected in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
