[1884 Presidential Election] Series of letters written from Silas Everett Hurin (1858-1946), Cincinnati, Ohio regarding Grover Cleveland, James Blaine and the Election of 1884. June 1884, "How does Blaine's nomination strike you? I was quite disappointed that John Sherman did not get the nomination. I can't see much sense in the course of Harper's Weekly and the New York Times. I am sorry that [Thomas] Nast went over to the enemy. In your last [letter] you spoke of [President U.S.] Grant's son having a place on South Street. I can't remember ever seeing the place." [This refers to Grant's son Fred.] September 1884, "He talks of reforming the Republican party by voting for Cleveland. It seems a queer sort of reformation. Everything looks encouraging for a sweeping Republican victory in both October and November. Blaine, Logan are to be here soon." September 1884, "The Maine election has put a lot of sand in the Republicans. Blaine, when he comes to Indiana will beat the Indianapolis Sentinel in that libel case and prove his first marriage in Kentucky." December 1884, "A post election letter in 1885: "Pleased with the way the [Cleveland] administration started out but don't like this constant appointment of Rebels to public offices." Hurin was a Princeton (Class of 1885) educated lawyer who served as a judge in the Ohio Third District Court of Appeals 1905-1911.
