Who, in your opinion, is the best fighter of to-day and also of all times?
We may say, Bob Fitzsimmons, everything considered.

My Dear Mr Biglow
I received the beautifull smoking jacket also the bottle of Byes and I thank you for them the coat fits fine but the Wiskey I will leave for my friends to drink, and I hope I will never touch Wiskey again it is no good. I am training hard now. I fight Dan Daley on the 22 of this month at Wiliams Port Pa and I fight the Boxing Commission next week. I am going to put the Commission out of commission they have no right to bar me from boxing and stop me from geting a living, they have even bared me from sparing with my son in an exibition even if I was offered 1000 a week I would not be alowed to get it by sparing in NJ State a fine job they have done, but we will suprise them before long. I had Mabel out Monday night to dinner. We dined at three places then I walked home with her to the Welington Hotel. I do not think she is very happy but she has herself to blame and no one else, I feel sorry for her anyway. Trusting you are injoying good health, and I wish you and yours a Happy New Year.
Sincerely your friend
