Abstract:

The Robert Milton Speer papers contains letters written to and by Speer regarding politics, the legal profession and law, and family. The first series deals with political and legal correspondences, the bulk of which were written around the time of his election to Congress in 1870. Also in this series are letters concerning Democratic party meetings, the election of Ulysses S. Grant, political sentiments, and requests for legal aid. There are also two letters written during the Civil War from a Major Frank Zentmyer, a member of the 34th Pennsylvania Regiment, 5th Reserves, which detail war conditions, anti-republican sentiments, and his feelings on uniting the political parties. Letters within this series are arranged chronologically. The second series consists of family correspondence and contains letters written by Robert Milton Speer's relatives. The letters of E.S. McMurtie, D.E. McMurtie, J. North, and C.C. North, the in-laws of Robert Milton Speer, address legal and personal matters. Most of the letters by Speer's other relatives are personal in nature and many offer congratulations on his election to Congress.
