Dr Neil Stanley Independent Sleep Expert
BACK J. G. Little-Child, ‘How I Discover Clues’, Lancashire Evening Post, 25 Nov. 1902. Now the theory which I resolved to work upon suggested itself suddenly. Sometimes in perplexing case I have gone home and had my first sleep, and then in the middle of the night I have clearly perceived the plan of action before me, when up to that moment the affair had seemed in a hopeless tangle. In this case I had not to wait for an idea. I went to a friend of mine who was a solicitor. Notice that this pattern of sleep only occurred “sometimes” and is not therefore evidence of “persons whose sleep, as late as the first decade of the twentieth century, remained segmented along older lines” as Ekirch claims.
