Letter from Ronald Sokol to Daniel Meador, Sunday, August 4, 1968

4 August 1968 Dear Dan, I am shoulder deep in habeas corpus. I have already churned out a nondescript, insipid article on the subject for Am. Jur.’s Encyclopedia of Trials. Despite the mediocre result it did get me back into the subject and brought me to grips with the new developments, the 1968 amendments and,…

Letter from Ronald Sokol to Daniel Meador, Saturday, August 5, 1978

I guess I am suffering the usual tribulations of law practice as I wanted to reply to your last letter which reached me on June 24th before I left for the States at the end of June.

Dear Dan, I very much enjoyed your letter as it had been so long, or at least seemed so long, since I had any word of you at all. The closing out of all I hope for the recovery of at least some of your sight is a cruel blow. I shall say no more. I have thought of you often in the past six…

Saturday, 21 July 1979 Dear Dan, The photograph has come, and I am delighted! The “friendly observers” you refer to in your letter merit something of a reprimand. The photo is more than “all right.” It is an excellent likeness, and I am very very happy to have it. I was especially pleased with your thoughtfulness…
