Sirs:
I have just read through SPORTS ILLUSTRATED from cover to cover and find it most interesting.

Naturally I have a special affection for boxing and I anticipate some intriguing presentations by Budd Schulberg, who can write as few others can.

Sirs:
Your new magazine should mean a lot to all sports in the years to come.

It is certainly a very interesting publication, and I am sure will be very well received. The articles and pictures are very well done.

You certainly have an A-l publication here and one which will be a great asset in increasing sports in general.

Sirs:
I read through it with a great deal of interest, and I assure you I have no suggestions as to how it can be improved. It is "tops" in my book. Everything about it has to appeal not only to those in the sports world, but to others as well.

Sirs:
You and your staff are to be congratulated on a job well done and I am looking forward to each succeeding issue.

After looking this first issue over, I want to compliment you and your staff for presenting such a fine sports magazine to the public. It certainly covers the activities of all sports in a most complete manner. Keep up the good work!
CLARK C. GRIFFITH

Sirs:
To use your own words, it is really "exciting." We, who have made amateur forays in the field, find great solace at least in knowing how well these things can be done under optimum auspices.

President
