The author of that book is challenged to fight, hand to hand combat, to attempt to substantiate his claim of JAY GOULD being a Robber. Let's put it this way, JAY GOULD, GEORGE JAY GOULD, and the rest of my family members can fight through me being their direct, and collateral descendant to whip on Edward J. Renehan, and force an apology. If he had actually done his proper research he wouldn't have made such a mockery of business transactions which he can neither equal nor surpass. Let me know if the challenge is accepted. An open to the public gymnasium, a boxing ring, a match within an octagon. Something contractual.

Gould once remarked [in quotes] . . . I can hire one-half of the workers in America to murder the other half. [Today, he could probably hire 90% of the workers to kill the remainder!]
