This piece is the result of merging and editing two letters (9-2-1969 and 6-29-1981) that Donn Draeger wrote to Robert W. Smith. Smith was writing a book review and asked Draeger for his opinion on the historical swordsman. This contains Draeger’s response in his typically ebullient tone of correspondence with Smith.
