To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name.In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The conflict about the meaning of free speech went on through the 1920s, Holmes and Brandeis persisting in their view and expressing it in strongly worded dissents.
