Brandeis, Louis D. Autograph Letter Signed ("Warren & Brandeis"). One page, quarto, Boston, May 5, 1882. On "Warren & Brandeis/Counsellors at Law" letterhead. To W.L. Putnam, Esq (surely William Le Baron Putnam, noted attorney and jurist, a Mayor of Portland and an appeals court judge). Transmittal folds, minor toning and very minor foxing. Fine.

Brandeis writes: "…We will immediately consult Mr. Emery and our other clients concerning Mr. Hamlin (this is probably Hannibal Hamlin, Lincoln's Vice President, or his son Charles, both of whom where active lawyers at the time) the R.R. office at Bangor would, we fear, be a very convenient place for Mr. Emery and us. We desire to make an examination of the books before taking any testimony at Bangor…Awaiting your further favor." A fine example of Brandeis as a young lawyer, which also points out the elevated circles in which that young Boston lawyer practiced as he moved to the top of his profession.
Estimated Value $300 - 400.

Realized $270
