Description


Boxing Hall of Famer (1881-1955) who was the heavyweight boxing champion of the world from 1906 through 1908. ALS, one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, July 13, 1947. Letter to Kenneth Browne, in part: "If everyone would look after the life within themselves with 'universal intelligence,' which is love, being kind to each other under any circumstance, then we would have no disease or wars. It's so simple that it is overlooked, that is the teachings of Jesus, but people have been away from that teaching for a long time time that it is sad, we only learn through punishment of some kind, I know as I have been there." In fine condition, with scattered light creasing. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed by Burns who incorporates his name into the return address field: "T. Burns."
