At first you get to know that Watson is a good friend from him and Sherlock is loyal to him what you can find in line 188 to 189. There it says " "It is both, or none" said he. " You may say before this gentleman anything which you may say to me." " Moreover it shows how straight-forward and self-confident he is, because he talks to the king in this situation. Sherlock is very sharp-minded because from line 70 there is written Sherlocks explaination how he deducted that Watson did a country walk and came home in a dreadful mess. Furthermore Watson describes Sherlock as a emotionless, cold person because he focus him to his "precise but admirally balanced mind" (line 3).
