Well, its actually my uncles letter. I wasnt born at the time.
This was sent after his defeat by Liston, before the rematch.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Bobby Peru again.

Floyd had some beautiful penmanship. The guy had some pride in who he was.

Floyd was great. It's a shame he wasn't able to make a great series out of his matches with Liston. Even so, I give him huge amounts of credit for agreeing to do a rematch with a man that he was so intimidated by. I hope that we see a lot of great Patterson reels on ESPN Classic soon.

By the way, hang on to that letter. It might actually be worth a pretty penny on the Antique Road Show someday. I'm not being sarcastic either.
