From "A Scandal in Bohemia"

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. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer. They were admirable things for the observer--excellent for drawing the veil from men's motives and actions. But for the trained reasoner to admit such intrusions into his own delicate and finely adjusted temperament was to introduce a distracting factor which might throw a doubt upon all his mental results. Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his own high-power lenses, would not be more disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his. And yet there was but one woman to him, and that woman was the late Irene Adler, of dubious and questionable memory.

Send an e-mail to fts@SouthernCrossReview.org. In the subject box write "e-book"; in the body write "Sherlock Holmes-vol. 1" and your credit card company, number and expiry date. In order to avoid the number being identified as a credit card, you may use the following code: Visa=1; Master Card=2; Amex=3. Therefore, a MasterCard that expires in August, 2002, would look like this: 23005556667778880802 - where the first digit indentifies the card as Master, the following digits are the number itself, and the last four digits indicate the expiry date.
