Lot 1023: Autograph manuscript, one lightly-lined page, 8 x 10.5, taken from a longer speech or essay. Ali writes, in part: "If you are contented with the wealth Allah (God) has given you, utilise it correctly, a true believer should spend it in Allah's cause, before such a time comes when you are deprived of your riches, we should make the best of our own life before we die, because as long as a person lives, he is capable of doing deeds, good or bad. But when he is dead, there is an end to all his deeds." Stapled to the front is a ballpoint signature and inscription, "To Fran, Muhammad Ali, God will guard His Truth, and is the Source of all things, He is Eternal, 7–86," on a yellow 5.5 x 4 lined slip, adding a small happy face at the bottom. Scattered creases and wrinkles, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from James Spence.
