SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.

OCTOBER TERM, 1905.

MONDAY, MAY 28, 1906.

It is ordered that the following correspondence be spread upon the record:

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.

May 28, 1906. DEAR BROTHER BROWN: We cannot allow your active participation in the work of the court to terminate with the adjournment of to-day without the expression of our sincere regret.

You came here with high reputation, justly deserved by a distinguished career of many years as a district judge of the United States, to which you have added in the fruits of over fifteen years of eminent judicial labors in this place.

Of those who were on this bench when you took your seat, Bradley, and Lamar, and Blatchford, and Field, and Gray have passed on, and you have witnessed the coming and the going of Shiras and Jackson, one of whom happily survives.

In a certain sense, what shadows we are, and what shadows we pursue, but not in every sense; for what has been worthily accomplished will still live and the memory of the just judge will not perish.

We assure you that those of us who have been longest with you, as well as those of a briefer association, alike concur in that affectionate regard and that deep respect which your amiable disposition and the great assistance in the administration of justice which your experience, learning, and ability have enabled you to render have inspired.
