'<Mrs. Showalter> ... is the present lady champion, and although only twenty-two, has signalized herself by <beating Lasker in a match at the odds of a Knight by five to two games.>'

  woldsmandriffield: Thanks, >Stonehenge<. I mentioned the apparently fictitious incident in a video. Shame it never happened - a great piece of make-believe.

  gawain: It's a darned shame that Nellie Love Marshall Showalter is not related to Frank J Marshall. Jackson Showalter marrying Frank Marshall's sister would have been some compensation for all of Mr. Showalter's losses to Marshall over the chessboard--including the US Championship match of 1909 in which Marshall seized the US title from Jackson Showalter.
