Letter - From Rhys Gabe to J.Gordon Jones regarding the 1905 All Blacks Match

Object Id: 
Letter written by Rhys Gabe refuting Teddy Morgan's claim, in an article published in July 1947, that he tackled Deans in the 1905 Wales v New Zealand match and therefore knew that it was a try. Gabe quotes a broadcast from 1935 where Morgan agrees Gabe tackled Deans not him and other players give their version of events.
Rhys Gabe and Gwyn Nicholls both insist Deans did not score.
