Wrestler Comstock Here

The New York Times – January 13, 1896

J. C. Comstock, the wrestler, of Grand Rapids, Mich., has arrived in New-York, and proposes to remain all Winter.  On Jan. 18 he will wrestle with Evan Lewis in the Leonard-Donovan Lenox Lyceum athletic entertainment.  The terms of this match will be the best two in three falls, catch-as-catch-can rules, for a purse.  A time limit of forty minutes will be placed on the bout, and if there is no fall there must be a decision, and the man doing the best work will get it.  For seven or eight years Comstock has been wrestling in the West, and has defeated Farmer Burns, Jack Karkeek, Charles Moth, Al Zimmerman and others.
