MR. SHAW ON POLYGAMY. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 18 December 1907
-MIí: SHAW ON POLYGAMY. Mr. G. Bernard Shaw's insatiable desire to shock V pfcpplo -has induced him to come forward' in defence of polygamy.- In a latter-to the London !?'Times" he propounds his ideas in ¡regard to the abolition of old maids, and, if his ways: were not already so well known, Mrs. Grundy would pro- bably be quite hysterical; He intro- duces the subject in characteristic fa- shion. .'"I, having ascertained that my opinion is representative enough to bo of some importance, am embol dened to say. that: the institution of Kuhn polygamy does not seem to mn to bc an treasonable one," he writ- es,» The prominence given to the per- sonal pronoun indicates that some- thing, unusual is to follow, and it ls therefore not' surprising to find Mr Shaw, deprecating' the calling of "certain customs" by suth; names as purity, charity, and propriety.
