[Temperance] Archive of eight politically charged letters from Silas Everett Hurin (1858-1946), Cincinnati, Ohio. Hurin was a Princeton (Class of 1885) educated lawyer who served as a judge in the Ohio Third District Court of Appeals 1905-1911. Excerpts from the archive: "We of this state are very indignant just now over the refusal of the US Senate to investigate the Payne bribery charges. In the House it would not have surprised anybody but Senators ought to be above such methods." (A reference to the election of Henry B. Payne of Ohio in 1886.)"Temperance and wool are the culprits that lost us thousands of German votes. The raising of the Temperance question at this time was a great blunder." He writes a great deal about Princeton, football and a detailed six page letter about a trip to Germany in 1884.
