ALS signed “O. W. Holmes,” one page both sides, 5 x 8, April 27, 1922. Letter to law professor and writer Thomas Reed Powell, in full: "Your Essays have come and have been received by me with the usual pleasure. I gathered that you do not regard with much favor the application of a special principle to bonds and by analogy and practice to negotiate instruments—a point on which history and perhaps convenience have seemed to me too strong not to require an exception—but I have not the subject in focus and should be easily crushed at this moment. We are in the spasms of the wind up so that I can't expatiate on other themes that you suggest as I should like to, but perhaps this will suffice to assure you that you have an appreciative reader." In fine condition. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
