"But not all of my readers took the hint that another volume was to follow. A few looked forward to a second book, more were annoyed that I was apparently avoiding my New Deal adventures, and one reviewer remarked indignantly that in a biographical book by a man who held high office in an epochal period like the New Deal and knew everybody of importance in such a period, one would expect observations and reflections of historical significance. Whether my observations will have historical value I do not know, but perhaps they can serve as footnotes on the history of those fermenting years. I have tried to keep the characters in this other half of my career in the same human scale as those who inhabited A Casual Past. Much of the public work which I describe was in association with Franklin Roosevelt. He appointed me Chairman of the Labor Board, a judge on the bench of the Third Circuit, Solicitor General, and, finally, Attorney General"--My second volume, page [ix].
