Lasker – “gallant to the ladies”

Out of his skull?

A couple of takes from the same 1899 Pall Mall Gazette article about a visit to a phrenologist that Lasker was somehow talked into going to:

(ACM v3 (1899) p123)

Lasker and the Phrenologist – The Japan Daily Mail (1899-12-23) p653

I don’t believe in phrenology anymore than I believe in astrology, but I will readily admit to reading my daily horoscope for entertainment purposes. The above articles have been posted in much the same spirit.
