Quandary Resolution 5710
bona fide, beaver away, captious, inutile
Dr. Watson continued to beaver away at preserving for posterity the cases of Sherlock Holmes, but because Holmes, when pressed for details, tended to reply with such captious descriptions of his own reasoning that the confused Watson was unable to accurately record them, the resulting stories were an inutile reflection of the sleuth's genius, and even caused people to doubt that Watson was his bona fide associate.
