OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES ALS AS SUPREME COURT JUSTICE

HOLMES, OLIVER WENDELL. (1841-1935). American jurist, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Attractive Autograph Letter Signed, “O.W. Holmes,” as Justice, on Supreme Court of the United States, Washington, D.C. stationery.  One full page, octavo.  May 19, 1924. To “My Dear Mr. King.” Holmes writes:

“Of course I am more than glad to have the volume of Mrs. King’s essays and to realize anew the adaptability of her will again and the felicity of her speech. Regret how that even now I did not have more opportunities for conversation with her. And am greatly obliged to you for these personal expressions of her thoughts.  It is a wonderful picture that Walter Lippman [1889-1974. American writer, journalist, and political commentator] gives.”
