Letter from Louis D. Brandeis to Alice G. Brandeis
January 14, 1908
Dearest: Had a half hour with Sen. Crane yesterday afternoon, with shades carefully drawn. I was reminded of Anna Karenina’s discovery of Oblonsky’s long ears.
Peeped in at Justice Holmes for tea, & returned for a charming dinner with them à quatre [sic]—quite as of old. Between times I called at the Cordova where I saw the 4 Goldmarks & Mrs. Tompkins & Miss Sasis.
Had had half an hour with Henry at luncheon. He is not going to N.Y. this week as his boss is here from Panama. He seems well content with Panama prospects . . . is expected from N.Y. today. Asa P. French had an interview with Prest. [Roosevelt] yesterday. Have not seen him since.
Weather rainy yesterday, fine today. Case may not be reached until tomorrow.
Dearest: Your sweet note reaches me this afternoon on returning from the capital. Our case will not be reached until two or a little earlier tomorrow and it is questionable whether I shall be able to leave before Thursday afternoon. Of course I long to be back—although Washington is having its bad winter weather. Bessie might as well desist from her efforts with the pamphlet. “None are so blind, etc.” [illegible] - and unless the New Haven really undertakes to answer the pamphlet - or times change … Muller can’t escape.
Called on Herbert Putnam—who was very pleased, but didn’t impress me deeply. His quarters are shamefully luxuriant.
