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.

The memo cites several cases in which courts have remitted contempt fines, though the case law appears weak, and concludes: "None of these cases are strong, but they give a hint as to proper practice." One vertical fold; very good condition.

The book was in my mailbox when I got home last night. Wonderful condition for a 40-year-old book. Nice condition in any case. I am very pleased. Thank you. A bit of trivia: You are only the second seller in six years not to tape the pull strip so it canít be used! Congratulations. Take care, and many, many thanks. I was really looking forward to this one, and you didnít disappoint. - G.W.
