"February 17, 1934

Mr. Donald S. Baker 818 Main Street Collegeville, Pennsylvania

Dear Mr. Baker:

I have your letter of February 15.

My knowledge of Latin and Greek has so faded with the years that there would be little value to any opinion which I might venture to express.

Even so, I am glad that I studied the two languages in my youth, and some times with the Loeb edition, I fancy that I remember more than I really do.

Very sincerely yours,

Benjamin Cardozo" (signed in black ink)

Benjamin Cardozo was an American jurist and the first Jew to serve on the Court of Appeals in New York. Horatio Alger was once one of his tutors. He is most remembered for his development of American Common Law.
