Gentleman Jim figures prominently in this advertising come-on by Reach—"Sole Manufactuer of the 'Corbett' Boxing Gloves." The 8-1/2" x 11" typewritten letter is clean Near Mint with mailing folds and reads, in part, "The season is near at hand when indoor will replace outdoor sports. The greatest and most fascinating, as well as the most vigorous and healthful indoor sport is boxing. To thoroughly enjoy this exercise it is necessary to have good gloves; we will state right here that the best as well as the cheapest boxing gloves are made by us. We make gloves from the cheapest on the market to those used by the champion 'Corbett.' Prices within the reach of everyone...Yours truly, A.J. Reach Co."
