O Henry did catch the color and movement of the city and evidenced a genuine sympathy for ordinary people.

Can you rephrase this sentence?

3

Evidenced in this sentence means "displayed" or "showed" in a way that can be seen by an observer.

"O Henry did catch the color and movement of the city and someone watching him could see he had a genuine sympathy for ordinary people."

  • Or exhibited. :) – Jason Bassford May 14 '18 at 8:08
  • Or most likely, evidenced is an error for evinced. – StoneyB May 14 '18 at 8:23
