Scope and Content

The majority of this collection from Congressman Smith involves correspondence between Smith and his wife Frances Breedlove Smith during the years 1890 through 1912. Other correspondence found in this collection occurs between W. R and Frances' children, close relatives, and friends of the Smith family. Biographical information on Smith and his son W. R. Jr. can be found at the beginning. Also, an investment check for Frances Smith accounts for the only other portion of this collection that does not involve Smith correspondence.
