May 24, 1790

THE MORNING POST & DAILY ADVERTISER, London, May 24, 1790  The top of page 3 has a column headed: "Boxing" which mentions in part: "...stated that Humphreys and Mendoza were to meet 'by accident' and finally contend for superiority of skill. This 'accidental encounter' was certainly designed by the friends of each party..." with much more on arranging for a boxing match. Daniel Mendoza was a quite famous Jewish boxer.
Four pages, very nice condition.
