She might sound just a bit snobbish but really its refinement.

Mycroft Holmes breathed as though with relief. “Excellent. This submarine—or rather the plans for its construction—has been the most jealously guarded of all government secrets. Perhaps I had better give you a brief sketch of its history. The submarine was developed some twenty years ago by a renegade Northern Indian prince calling himself Captain Nemo, who used the vessel to cause considerable headaches among the international shipping routes. By providence the Captain and his ship were reported as lost several years ago. Two years ago, to be exact, we learned of its location under the seas, and a top-secret expedition was dispatched to seek out and recover the ship, and learn its secrets. According to the reports submitted to me at the time, the vessel, when discovered , was too damaged to be moved, so the party was obliged to study and document its every detail sub undis. When the observations were completed, the ship was blasted to oblivion. Meticulous plans were drawn for its reconstruction, and special Engine cards were created for the purpose of storing the vital information. These were kept in an elaborate strongroom in a confidential office adjoining the Woolwich Arsenal, and never removed from the premises. If the chief Navy constructor desired to consult them, even he was constrained to go personally to the office in Woolwich.”
Victoria Valentine being interviewed by Sherlock Holmes about the recent murder of her fiancé and the death of her brother.
“Technical cards? Ah yes, my brother mentioned Engine cards of some sort in his farewell letter to me,” she said. “He said that Arthur had stolen cards containing a state secret of great value. I cannot help you in any way there, Mr. Holmes; I really know very little about my brother's work, and less of my fiancé's. Neither of them ever discussed their affairs with me.”
“It... it was this dreadful scandal,” she said, between weeping sobs. “He... he couldn't take it, I suppose. His honor was so dear to him, and his pride in his department so profound, that it broke his heart to hear that one of his own trusted men could do such a thing. His letter to me said as much. My own dear, dear brother. Oh, Mr. Holmes, I am desolate, desolate.” She trailed off again into a burst of quiet weeping behind her handkerchief.
