Good Letter From Grand Rapids Boy

Wood County Reporter – April 17, 1919

Lapwai, Ida., Apr. 9, 1919

To A.L. Fontaine,

Grand Rapids, Wis.

Dear Friend Fontaine: — Just ran across this clipping regarding an old Nekoosa boy, Bob Fredericks, who went to school when I was principal there in ‘98-‘99.

“Strangler Lewis” to Wed

Announces Engagement to Widely Known California Woman

SAN JOSE, Cal., Apr. 8 Robt. Frederick, known to the sporting world as “Strangler Lewis,” nationally famous wrestler, and Dr. Ada Scott Morton, one of the best known women surgeons in California, will be married May 1, in New York. They announced their engagement here today. Lewis expects to continue wrestling. They will return to San Jose after a wedding trip to England and make their home here.

The romance began more than two years ago, when Dr. Morton operated on Lewis after an accident at Butte, Mont., in which his ankle was broken.

Yours respectfully,

C.W. Jenkins
