the porous city

After having lunch with Judge Learned Hand, Holmes entered his carriage to be driven away. As he left, Judge Hand’s parting salute was:

“Do justice, sir, do justice.”

Holmes ordered the carriage stopped.

“That is not my job,” Holmes said to Judge Hand. “It is my job to apply the law.”
