Description: 1 page on plain three-holed notebook paper, 9.5 x 6 inches, no place, February 5, 1947. At the top and bottom of a typed memo headed "Power of Court to Remit Contempt Fine," Burton has noted in pencil: "Memo to the Chief Justice (Preliminary report from my law clerk...Suggest therefore that a court could reserve the right to reexamine the fine at the conclusion of the hearing of the merits.
