I love the casual, matter of fact tone of the the letter. He talks about "running into a 16 foot crocodile and putting a broadhead through his chest" as if it's an everyday occurrence.

I wonder who Bill is, and who do you think "the other guys" are?

Very interesting. Truly a different time for sure. Men like him took risks that make you wonder how they lived as long as they did.

I remember talking to a Bill long time ago at Lakeside Holf Course in California. I believe the Bill was who HOWARD HILL wrote the letter to. Would like to know where and how the letter was acquired, in ordee to put the picture together for everyone. I know that HOWARD HILL was a member there and had many friends there he played golf with.

Hi Jerry,

The letter doesn't belong to me. I found it for sale on a book and document website.
