Although this tale is supposed to be a true story, research tells one that the phrase, "Monsieur X", appears throughout French arts and culture, but a search in the Le Petite Journal (archived on-line only through 1940) yields no evidence of this story represented in McWilliam's tale.
Henri Rousseau painted the "Portrait of Monsieur X" (Pierre Loti, a novelist who died in 1923). It was also the name used by an erotic photographer of the 1920's and 1930's. And in 1948, Edith Piaf recorded a song called "Monsieur X", a melancholy song about a beautiful man who wandered in sadness by the Seine.
