Stone eulogized Associate Justice Cardozo, who had died three months before this letter was written. He wrote: "The death of Justice Cardozo was an irreparable loss to his friends, to the Court, and to the country. I could hardly undertake to say how greatly I miss him." Stone also thanks Shapiro for sending him a "very interesting account" of "Mr. Wellman's book," most likely Francis Wellman's Luck and Opportunity: Recollections (1938).
