    event in the history of law like the death of a significant member of the Supreme Court is not to be disregarded because it has not been scheduled Ken Jones who was clerking at the Supreme Court at the time called to underscore Justice Frankfurter s displeasure I beat a hasty retreat munching crow all the way Dear Mr Justice Mr Kenneth Jones was kind enough to call us yesterday to reiterate your dissatisfaction with our stand on the issue of Mr Justice Jackson Perhaps we have overestimated our obligation to those authors to whom we have already committed ourselves and I hope you will forgive our mistaken sense of proportion In the end I was forgiven for my mistaken sense of proportion Not only did the Justice agree to write a foreword for the issue but I was treated to the following letter February 3 1955 My dear Mr Sovern It won t write is an old phrase down here to describe the recalcitrancy of an opinion to get itself on paper I do not think I ever attempted a piece of writing that was so stubbornly resistant as my attempt to say something briefly about Mr Justice Jackson There are two reasons for this One is the discretion under which I labor as a member of the Court the other my deep feeling about the late Justice My trouble is not want of things to say but freedom in saying them Writing under wraps is not conducive to writing I am troubling you with my difficulties in order to explain what may seem to you an absurd delay in sending you the promised little piece While I could talk by the hour about Mr Justice Jackson I find myself constrained as I do in writing something that may take only a few minutes to read The point of this letter is to tell you that you ought not to hold up the pagination of your leading articles to await my small Foreword What I shall finally send you will I know absorb three pages This assurance will I hope enable you to go ahead without further delay and at the same time enable me to stew some more in my own difficulty Cordially yours Justice Felix Frankfurter Note the closing no longer was the Justice only Sincerely mine And the issue turned out to be one of the best for which I was responsible 2 Jackson was a great subject a small town lawyer Jamestown New York who rose to be attorney general of the United States and then a justice of the Supreme Court He was also the chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg war crimes trials an assignment he managed by taking an almost unprecedented leave of absence from the Supreme Court He also could be funny when an advocate before the court discovered to his great joy that Jackson as attorney general had issued an opinion taking precisely the position the advocate was urging he made
