Clinton N.G. May 31, 46. Joseph J Corn Esq. 271 Madison Ave. New York 16 N.Y. My dear Corn, I am in receipt of your letters about the 50th reunion dinner, but it is doubtful if I can attend. Transportation to Clinton at night is difficult, and I do not feel up to motoring. For a number of years past I have been mulling over this question of recurring wars and depressions and have come to the conclusion that they are caused by our disregard of some natural law. Judge Dore's lecture on natural law and Frank Stark's comments recently published in the Law Journal are most interesting. My approach has been different. Following the traditional case system I have studied inductively a number of selected communities where the question of survival and "unalienable rights"are squarely presented, and the results of their denial and the ensuing re-actions self-evident. I believe it is within the power of the appropriate courts to define the law, particularly where legislatures are dilatory or adverse, and that we do not have to await legislation or constitutional amendment. If you think it would interest the class, I will outline my notes in a few pages. Warmest regard to yourself and the Judge and to all the class. Sincerely, R. W. [illegible]
