Excerpt from Wrestliana: An Historical Account of Ancient and Modern Wrestling

It is a common and received proverb, that A man is known by his works, and a tree by its fruits. Here, then, is an amusement peculiarly chosen not only by one better, and greater than any man but as if to give strength and firmness, combined with quickness and elasticity, to the limbs discrimination and vigour to the body; coolness to the head, and perception to the mind: the whole forming an ener getic combination of the whole power given to man. No exercise could have been selected, tending more to exalt his character, and from which such typical illustrations could have been deduced for his spiritual advantage. Here, then, we take our stand. Advo cates for anv other diversion, be it whatever it may.
