Notes:
This letter is one of a series written by Wilfrid Laurier to journalist Ulric Barthe between January 1889 and January 1891. Much of the correspondence relates to Barthe's request for copies of speeches delivered by Laurier in order to be published. Barthe's compilation, "Wilfrid Laurier à la tribune" ("Wilfrid Laurier on the platform") was published in 1890.

Wilfrid Laurier (1841-1919) was Canada's eighth Prime Minister, holding office 1896-1911. Laurier was born in St. Lin, Quebec. He received a law degree from McGill University in 1864, and practiced law in Montreal and Arthabaskville from 1864-1896. Wilfrid Laurier was Liberal party leader from 1887 until his death in 1919.

LAURIER, LAVERGNE & COTÉ

AVOCATS & Etc.

HON. W. LAURIER J. LAVERGNE P.H. COTÉ

Arthabaskaville, 14 novembre 1889,

Cher Mr. Barthe,

Je ne tiens pas beaucoup à la publication en volume, de mes discours. J’y consentirai de grand cœur, si vous pensez cependant & faire votre profit. Laissez moi cependant mes prier, de n’entreprendre cette publication que si vous avez la perspective assuré du succès. Dans ce cas où vous persisteriez dans votre projet,

(Page 2)

je me ferai un devoir autant qu’un plaisir non seulement de vous donner la liste de mes discours, mais aussi de vous aider dans la publication. Je tiendrai à réviser personnellement tout ce qui sera livré à la publicité, car bien souvent, comme vous avez du le remarquer, le reporter a émaillé son rapport de nombreuses coquilles.

Votre bien dévoué

Wilfrid Laurier
