Notes, topics or text 

Ali thanks BR for his "recent thoughtful and sensitive response to my humble letter", although he doesn't think IWCT evidence could be used in his defence in resisting the draft.

The heavyweight champion of the world is sorry he had to give Henry Cooper and Brian London a "drubbing", as the English people have been so kind to him in his plight.
