This type written letter from John L. Sullivan is addressed to a venue owner in hopes of making a deal for some exhibition matches. Though the letter is undated it is clearly written towards the end of his career as he states this will be the first time he has sported boxing gloves in nine years. The letter is typed on 8 ?” x 13” paper which has a tear along a fold line that is approximately 3” long. There is also some minor edge wear but none of this affects either the EX quality of the signature or the entertaining text that offers a unique insight into the life of World Champion boxer John L. Sullivan.
