- 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.
