I am sure no reporter was present.
That damned reporter is supposed to interview me at 3:00.
This was Speranski, Secretary of State, reporter to the Emperor and his companion at Erfurt, where he had more than once met and talked with Napoleon.
The only office he held was that of reporter of the supreme court of Indiana for two terms (1860-1862 and 1864-1868), and this was strictly in the line of his profession.
He began his career as a newspaper reporter, studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1889.
