    More Information:

    Shaw, the well-known Irish writer, suggests to Frank Haywood, Jr. where he might find a copy of an article by the Austrian Jewish philosopher Max Nordau. In full: "Dear Sir, It is just possible that Frederick H. Evans, bookseller, 77 Queen St., Cheapside, London E.C., may have some copies of the Nordau article left: I know he laid in a small stock when it was fresh. My own copy is not available just at present--I forgot who borrowed it last./ Yours faithfully/ G. Bernard Shaw." Frederick Evans, bookseller and acquaintance of Shaw, retired from bookselling in 1898 to become a full-time photographer, eventually becoming well-known in this capacity.
