Dear Elena,

Congratulations on the pending announcement of your nomination as our nation’s Solicitor General. The country’s gain is a temporary loss for the legal academy, though we must try to think in larger terms. You have been a great colleague as a Dean, and before that as a faculty colleague at Chicago, and so we at the University of Chicago Law School take special pride in your success and accomplishments, past and future. I should locate the spot here, where you and Barack Obama first met, and install a marker to celebrate an acquaintance that will prove fruitful for the nation.

Best of luck and I hope to see you soon,

Saul
