Letter from Herbert Boreman to Ronald Sokol, November 22, 1965

United States Court of Appeals
Fourth Judicial Circuit

November 22, 1965

CHAMBERS OF
HERBERT S. BOREMAN
UNITED STATES CIRCUIT JUDGE
PARKERSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA

Mr. Ronald P. Sokol
Director, Appellate Legal Aid
School of Law, University of Virginia
Charlottesville, Virginia 22901

Dear Mr. Sokol:

It is a matter of great concern to me and to the
members of this court that you will soon be severing
your connection with the University as Director of the
Appellate Legal Aid program. Under your direction the
program has undoubtedly been successful and your personal
representation of indigent petitioners by appointment has
been of invaluable assistance to the court.

In a word, I am very sorry, indeed, that you are
leaving but I wish you well in your every undertaking.
It is the hope of all of us that this program, so successfully
established and carried on under your guidance, may
be continued without interruption.

I extend my kindest personal regards.

Sincerely,

[handwritten signature]
Herbert S. Boreman
