Notes:

[1]Elected.
[2]"We gained by the last census an additional representative; for which a new district was formed, composed of the counties of Berkely, Jefferson, Hampshire and Hardy. There was no 'Gerrymandering' to answer particular purposes as has been ridiculously asserted in some of the federal prints.The old districts remain precisely as they were." A note explains that Gerrymandering "is a new term to signify the alteration of congressional districts. The Boston federal printers have the credit of originating it." The Columbian (New York, NY). May 25, 1813.
