Essay: "The Fight." William Hazlett.

Review: England. Getting to, being there, and coming from the fight. A blow by blow account. A bloody account. “All traces of life, of natural expression were gone from him. His face was like a human skull, a death’s head, spouting blood. The eyes were filled with blood, the nose streamed with blood, the mouth gaped blood.”

A vivid account of a bare-knuckles fight.
