Addressed to Dr. Forrest R. Black, a law professor whom Darrow was helping publish his essays advocating for repeal of Prohibition. Letter reads, ''My Dear Mr. Black / Enclosed is the letter of reference [not included], which I presume you will mail. I could have made it much simpler perhaps I should. As soon as you arrive in Chicago would you please call up my home Hyde Park 5657. I have a meeting of my own in for the evening of the 29th for which I am sorry and the next morning I shall go east. So I want to see you as soon as is convenient on your arrival - Very truly / Clarence Darrow''. Single page letter measures 7.25'' x 10.25''. Uniform toning and mild creasing; very good condition.
