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.

29th Jany. 1890

Dear Mr Barthe,

I have your favour, and I have also received the manuscript of my speech of November, 1885.

The speech has been so outrageously reported that there is nothing to be made out of it and you had better give it up.

Sincerely yours,

Wilfrid Laurier

Ulric Barthe Esq
