A personal letter by Edgar Chadwick


May 17, 1899
To the editor of the Evening Express.
SIR, – It has been constantly brought before my notice that the Press state that I am about to retire from football. This is not true. Why should I retire? I consider I have some good football left in me. This will probably surprise my Everton and Liverpool friends. If I retire it will be because the Everton directorate have placed such a large transfer fee on me so that I cannot obtain a decent situation. I have served the Liverpool public faithfully and honourably during my stay at Everton, and think it unfair to be treated thus. – Yours, &c.
Edgar Chadwick; 10, Fawcett-street, Blackburn, May 17.
