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.

HON. W. LAURIER J. LAVERGNE P.H. COTÉ

Arthabaskaville, 9 décembre 1990

Cher Mr. Barthe,

Je vous envoie le manuscrit des deux discours sur l’adresse (1871) & sur le double-mandant.

Vous m’avez transmis mon discours sur l’adresse à la chambre des commerces 1874. Je ne suis pas d’avis de donner à ce discours les honneurs de la publicité : ce n’est qu’un simple squelette, tant le

rapport est incomplet.

Avez-vous pensé qu’il serait à propos de faire précèdes chaque discours d’une courte introduction, expliquant le sujet & l’occasion. Si vous y avez pensé, faites moi, s’il vous plait, ce plaisir de m’indiquer en peu de mots quel est votre plan.

Votre bien dévoué

Wilfrid Laurier
