Eric Alfred Burchell Rowan. Transvaal, Eastern Province & South Africa 1929-1954. Four page handwritten letter from Rowan to an unknown correspondent. The letter is undated, but appears to have been written following the 1949/50 Australia tour to South Africa and prior to the 1950 South Africa tour to England. Regarding the Australians, Rowan writes, 'The Aussies were a good side but not the world beaters we made them look. The reasons for our own dismal failures are legion so I will not bother you with them now but if I write a book next year I will most certainly speak my mind'. Regarding the impending tour to England, 'Athol and I are both fit and playing hockey for Jeppe. His leg is as good as it will ever be & provided he is well managed should give your batsmen a rough time next year'. The letter appears to be lacking the first page. Sold with a mono press photograph of Rowan in batting action, dated 13th May 1951, signed by Rowan. G/VG
