Strangers to Us All
Lawyers and Poetry

William Ebenezer Richmond

Rhode Island

We have, to date, located no biographical source of information on Mr. Richmond. He seems to have been, in some way, involved in Rhode Island's adoption of a constitution. He was, in the 1820s, editor of the Manufacturer's and Farmer's Journal which was published in Providence. He was a lawyer, and an author, so far as we know, of a single book of poetry.
