Dated June 12, 1942 on a single sheet of stationery with "Supreme Court of the United States / Washington, D.C. / Chambers of Justice Felix Frankfurter" letterhead. Frankfurter wrote to a well-wisher named H.O. Antman of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in part: "Let me acknowledge your friendly and courteous letter of June 6th…" Expected paper folds, else near fine.

Felix Frankfurter graduated from Harvard Law School in 1906 with a superb academic record. He soon joined the faculty of his alma mater, serving as a Professor of Law from 1914-1924, and as a Professor of Administrative Law from 1924-1939. The New York lawyer was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose close advisor he later became. Frankfurter served on the bench from 1941 until retirement in 1962.
