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, 6 décembre 1889

Cher Mr. Barthe

Je vous adresse par ce courrier, mon discours sur le Libéralisme & mon discours sur la Réciprocité. Dans le premier page 27 se trouve une citation que j’ai attribué à J. [?] Rousseau. J’ai vu depuis quelque part la même citation attribué à Lefranc de

(Page 2)

Pompignan. J’ai fait erreur peut-être. J’ai fait cette citation de mémoire, du cours de littérature de La Harpe que je n’ai jamais revu depuis que j’ai quitté le collège.

Pouvez vous a Québec, vous assurer de ce qu’en est, & si j’ai fait erreur, il [?] de faire une correction non dans le texte, mais par une note.

Je vous enverrai votre manuscrit lundi.

Bien à vous,

Wilfrid Laurier
