Amazing piece of boxing history! This undated, handwritten letter by
former light heavyweight boxing champ, Willie Pastrano, professes an
admiration for, and described a jail visit with Reuben "Hurricane"
Carter. Carter's story, jailed for a murder he did not commit, was
made famous by a Bob Dylan song and a feature film. Pastrano
describes how he brought an influential New Orleans judge, Eddie
Sapier, to meet with his friend in jail and other measures taken to
free the innocent man. Fascinating read on 3.5 pages of mint, legal-
size, yellow lined paper. Signed by Pastrano.
