Description: J. R. Smith Resigned from Consul

Date: April 3 1885

Newspaper published in: Tupelo, MS

Source: Lee Co., MS Library

Page/Column: Page 2, Column 3

Our fellow townsman, Mr. J. R. Smith, in politics Republican, and who was appointed Consul at some place away down in South America by ex-President Arthur, upon the duties of which he had never entered, has resigned his position. He says he sent on his resignation to take effect on the 4th of March, so as not to embarrass the present administration. He thinks that this is right, the decent way for all Republicans holding office to do—get out before being kicked out.—Meridian Mercury.
