Christmas   in the Works of
Stanley Weintraub

The Playwright and the Pirate:
Bernard Shaw and Frank Harris:
A Correspondence

University Park: Pennsylvania State University Press, 1982

p. 62

3 Washington Square, New York

Dec.23, 1916

My Dear Shaw:

I just want to send a word to wish you Christmas greetings

and all luck and happiness in the new year.

I wanted to thank you for the great kindness you have shown

me. I have not had occasion to be grateful often in my life but I

delight in the feeling and hug it to my heart. I am very glad to

think of Bernard Shaw as full of the milk of human kindness.

I believe too, that he is working for peace as I am, and there

is no other cause at this moment so worthy. I can hardly bear

even to think of the brutal war -- an insult to human reason. I

stretch hands across the sea to Shaw and thank him with all

my heart, and am proud to hail him as a great captain in the

liberation war of humanity.

Ever yours,

Frank Harris
