Some toning, two horizontal fold lines to letter, which has a full signature. Items housed in handsome recent cloth solander case with calf lettering piece. $650. * Friendly letter to Alice Strong, who was compiling an anthology of quotations. It appears she asked Frankfurter for a suggestion. He writes, "I should like to offer...Mr. Justice Holmes' words: 'The mode by which the inevitable comes to pass is effort'." It appears that Strong never completed (or published) her anthology. This letter was part of the collection of James S. Copley, the newspaper chief and bibliophile.
