Letters from Dean Acheson to Alice G. Brandeis
[Assistant Secretary of State letterhead]
October 3, 1941
Dear Mrs. Brandeis,
I am deeply touched and most grateful that you should have sent me the Justice's copy of Fowler. I shall treasure it always. Elizabeth's words and yours about what I said at the service have cheered me a great deal. I had had a deep feeling of the impossibility of saying what was in my heart. You and the Justice have become so deep a part of my life that words are quote inadequate.
I had hoped to come in this week for a late afternoon chat with you. But a Venezuelan mission just left today and a Canadian one arrives tomorrow. Perhaps you can give me a[sic] hour next week. Alice tells me that you are well which is good news--
The Justice's book is on my own special shelf.
With much love from us both.
Oct. 29, 1941.
