Place Published: New York
Date Published: 1935
Description: Nice grouping of three typed letter signed, each on "Medina & Sherpick" letterhead measuring 11 x 8.5 inches, written from 1935 to 1947 to noted liberal New York State Appellate Court Judge Bernard L. Shientag. In the first letter, dated February 19, 1935, Medina congratulates Shientag for sending a copy of his address and pamphlet "The Trial of a Civil Jury Action in New York City" and states: "It is by all odds the best thing of its kind that I have ever read..." In the second letter, dated March 21, 1945, Medina thanks Shientag for an enclosure pertaining to one of his cases, stating: "Your remarks were perfection itself..." In the third letter, dated June 20, 1947, Medina sends his friend congratulations on Shientag's appointment as Associate Justice to the Appellate Division, in part: "..When I read the New York Times this morning as I stepped off the plane to Los Angeles, I literally jumped with joy. My one regret is that I shall probably never have the privilege of appearing before you..." All three letters have staple holes along the left margins, but are still in very good condition.
