The Smith-Love family papers document the public life and career pursuits of an Indiana family. Oliver H. Smith (1794-1859) was a lawyer and Whig politician from Indiana. Smith's correspondence contains letters from William Hendricks (10 Dec. 1833 & 10 Jan. 1834), which discuss Van Buren's character and prospects to be the next president. A letter (5 Sept. 1833) refers to Van Buren's likely nomination at the Baltimore convention.
