The price of fame, exploitation of name, when your alive people will often keep their distance, after your gone they will claim some connection. Like maggots.

my guess is that Pound knew neither the lady or the gentleman.... //.... Very sensible. When a celebrity is gone, concocting such tales has no meaning.

Not a Poundian scholar but a pounding scholar. To old fashioned me it reads like an anecdote.
