Though he must have understood that the New Deal was not as much of a meritocracy as his boss tried to make it, he shared Frank's dedication.  Fortas and Austern worked quickly. " 50 Shortly before midnight it was ready for delivery to the Department of Agriculture, which stamped it and set a hearing date.
