November 20, 1920.
Autograph letter signed and entirely in the hand of Oliver Wendell Holmes on Supreme Court letterhead. Dated November 20th 1920, the letter reads, “Mr. Barnes called last Evening and delivered to me the handsome Copy of your amended essay. In his presence I established in my shelves, its place being by the side of a fine edition of my much admired Malthus. Mr. Barnes gave a charming account of you and I enjoyed his call very much – none the less that he had been received at any earlier moment with some suspicion as an unknown man with a bag. I hardly know which gives me the greater pleasure – your kind estimate of my work or the admirable quality of yours. On both grounds I am very much obliged to you and am Sincerely yours, O.W. Holmes.” Holmes’ legal philosophy was strongly influenced by the political and economic observations of Thomas Robert Malthus, powerfully expressed in his best-known work An Essay on the Principle of Population, published in 1798. Matted and framed with a drawing of Holmes. The entire piece measures 15 inches by 12 inches.
