What is the difference between dinner and supper?
I understand both as the same meal.
In The Hound of the Baskervilles, there is this sentence:
And now, if we are too late for dinner, I think that we are both ready for our suppers.

From this sentence, it seems like you're supposed to have dinner, and then have supper?
I am really confused.
