|The bar of Northampton County shared this preeminence,
and for more than a century it has maintained its prestige in the front
rank of the profession in the commonwealth. Its roll contains the
names of many distinguished and able lawyers who have also been in high
official station. It is not my province in this paper to catalogue
them but it will suffice to mention Samuel Sitgreaves, Judge Hopewell Hepburn,
Judge Joel Jones, George Wolf, governor of Pennsylvania, James M. Porter,
twice president judge and secretary of war in President Tyler's cabinet;
Brodhead, a member of Congress and senator of the United States; Peter
Ihrie, Henry D. Maxwell, Sr., Henry Green, chief justice of Pennsylvania,
Judge Kirkpatrick, attorney general of Pennsylvania; Howard J. Reeder,
judge of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania and General Frank Reeder, secretary
of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania...
|In the year 1854, Franklin Pierce was President
of the United States.
His secretary of war was Jefferson Davis and
he was a most influential member of the administration. Asa Packer
was then a member of Congress from this district, and Hon. Richard Brodhead
was United States senator from Pennsylvania. When the question
of the appointment of a territorial governor for Kansas was being considered,
Judge Packer suggested the appointment of Governor Reeder.
