Justice David Souter letter to Randy Holland: Polite Declination for a Brown Commemoration Speech – January 8, 2004

Supreme Court of the United States Washington, D. C. 20543
January 8, 2004

Dear Randy:

I have been remiss in not responding to your November letter about Judge Ambro’s invitation. Owing to our precautionary delays in mail delivery, your note didn’t come until we were geared up for the December arguments. I’m certain Judge Ambro has long since told you that I’ve asked to be excused from speaking at the Brown com- memoration. Since, as you’ve said, I’ve already addressed Judge Seitz’s great contribution on a couple of past occa- sions, I did not think there was any chance his family would misunderstand my staying away this time. The less I speak, the better; and with what we’ve got ahead of us this spring, I’m not looking for any extra-curricular opportunities in May.

But it was nice to hear from you. I hope you’ll find it a great new year.

Yours sincerely,

The Honorable Randy J. Holland Supreme Court of Delaware
Post Office Box 369
Georgetown, Delaware 19947
