[Identification of item], Leslie Combs letters, 1839-1857, 1VF56M261, 1VF60M147, AAM6984LM, Special Collections, University of Kentucky. Lawyer, politician. Leslie Combs, born in Kentucky, was educated by the Rev. John Lyle, a well-known Presyterian minister and teacher. He was a captain of scouts in the War of 1812, and saw action in the River Raisin campaign and in the relief of the seige at Fort Meigs, Ohio. After the war, he read law and was admitted to the state bar in 1818. He served several terms in the lower house of the Kentucky legislature between 1827 and 1859, and in 1846 was Speaker. He was clerk of the Court of Appeals from 1860 to 1866. He was a Whig in politics as long as that party existed. This is a collection of three letters written by Leslie Combs.  Included are a letter to Nicholas Biddle, written in 1839 and concerning an investment Combs had made in Texas bonds (60M147), a letter to J.P. Phoenix written in 1844 and given over almost entirely to a description of how Henry Clay handled defeat (56M258), and an 1859 letter to H.T. Duncan concerning arrangements for ceremonies at the Clay memorial in Lexington, Ky. (56M261). Arranged by accession number. Biddle, Nicholas, 1786-1844. Clay, Henry, 1777-1852.
