Richards, Franklin S.
Found in 4 Collections and/or Records:
Handwritten and signed orders dated 27 Sept. 1866 and 23 Sept. 1869. The materials appear to be signed by a T.G. Webber or a T.T. Webber. The items are addressed to Capt. F. S. Richards and were issued under the command of Brig. Gen. F. D. Richards and apparently deal with the fall muster of the Utah militia in Ogden.
Handwritten and typewritten correspondence and legal papers. The materials relate to Richards' law career in Utah. Some of the materials relate to the Edmunds-Tucker Act of 1887 which sought to make the prosecution of the practice of polygamy enforceable and to Mormon polygamy in general.
Photocopy of a handwritten and signed letter, dated 1 March 1886, and addressed to Franklin S. Richards, a lawyer in Salt Lake City, Utah. Snow thanks Richards for "securing appeal in my three cases to the U. S. Supreme Court and promise of bail." The issue involved was probably a charge of polygamy made against Snow.
Handwritten and signed letters addressed to Franklin S. Richards. The items are dated 20 June 1877, 2 Dec. 1885, and 12 Feb. 1886. In 1877 Snow writes to Richards, who was "five thousand miles" away, with a birthday greeting. Snow also writes about his trial for polygamy.
