Dear Sir: Pudon this long delay in writ ng you since our trip to New York, but I ,have been so busy at the Office, I have not had the op-portunity. Now with the season over, I am able to catch up with my correspondence. I wish to thank you for allow ng Pat P atterson to make the trip, and I am very well pleased with the showing he made. He really fought better in his second fight, which he lost, tha n in the first which he won. However, he just didn't have the experience to compete with hls second ;round opponent. He went down fighting and put up a very good exhilntion. His conduct was exemplary on the trip, and I am sure that he had a good time. I haven' t forgotten those pictures you asked for, and I will mall them to you some time this week along with a picture of Pat terson in his New York fight. Give my regards to Pat and please accept my very best wishes or yourself and Drew Field. I .ope that we can get together again on an amateur tournamen!. I have been giving some thought to putting on a tournament some time later for servrcemen only in South Florida with the entire proceeds to be divided equally among he camps competing, the money to go to-the athletic funds.
