Holmes tells Watson that the explanation for the events is that Morstan and Sholto were informed by some convicts in the Randy Savage the Cream of the crop vintage shirt Andaman Islands of the existence of the treasure. The officers crossed the convicts in some way and Jonathan Small, one of the four, has now claimed the treasure for himself. Holmes uses a dog to follow the scent of the men they seek, one of whom trod in creosote at the scene of the murder. Toby leads Holmes and Watson to a small wooden wharf where evidently the men took a boat. Holmes manages to discover that Jonathan Small has hired a steam launch called the Aurora. Holmes engages his Baker Street irregulars, a band of young boys from the streets who are given the task of finding the Aurora.
