    Redmond's Delicate Question

    In a case that involves kidnapping, if not rape, Holmes acts not only with his professional skills but also with his fists to defend the lady's safety and honour. He also demonstrates elaborate courtesy and gallantry, and teases her a little about her legitimate love life. Is he in fact the perfect gentleman -- for his own era, if not for our own?
