by MEDINA, Harold R.
New York, 1935. unbound. Nice grouping of three typed letter signed, each on "Medina & Sherpick" letterhead measuring 11 x 8.5 inches, written from 1935 to 1947 to noted liberal New York State Appellate Court Judge Bernard L. Shientag. In the first letter, dated February 19, 1935, Medina congratulates Shientag for sending a copy of his address and pamphlet "The Trial of a Civil Jury Action in New York City" and states: "It is by all odds the best thing of its kind that I have ever read..." In the second letter, dated March 21, 1945, Medina thanks Shientag for an enclosure pertaining to one of his cases, stating: "Your remarks were perfection itself..." In the third letter, dated June 20, 1947, Medina sends his friend congratulations on Shientag's appointment as Associate Justice to the Appellate Division, in part: "..When I read the New York Times this morning as I stepped off the plane to Los Angeles, I literally jumped with joy. My one regret is that I shall probably never have the privilege of appearing before you..." All three letters have staple holes along the left margins, but are still in very good condition. American lawyer, teacher, and judge who is most noted for hearing cases of conspiracy and treason. (Inventory #: 219846)
