    Smile a Mr. A. G. Sinclair

    Hello everyone

    I don't understand the usage of 'a' before the proper noun in this sentence. Would you help please?

    Read the following information about a Mr. A.G Sinclair. Rearrange the sentences so that they appear in chronological order.

    Re: indefinite article

    It means 'a man called'.

    The writer is implying that he's never heard of the Sinclair guy before.
