This manuscript was written for the Pittsfield Paper and Pen Club, likely a book club, and discusses the important work of George Bernard Shaw (the 'Court Jester'). It would appear that a fair bit of the material is drawn from Archibald Henderson's 1911 biography of Shaw and Davis' own experience of Shaw's plays. Particular attention to the subject of marriage in his work.
