[1]"The following is the return from the different counties composing the second district. There were several candidates, tho' only known in the counties in which they were voted for. The small number of votes is owing to their being no KNOWN opposition to Col. Harle." Wilson's Knoxville Gazette (Knoxville, TN). November 23, 1808.
[2]"We are authorized to state that Colonel Baldwin Harle will be a candidate at the ensuing election for elector in the district composed of the counties of Jefferson, Sevier, Cocke, Grainger and Claiborne. Col. Harle is decidedly for Madison. This is the only district in which an oppostion to the Madison candidate was talked of; none however has been set up, and the five candidates in the districts of this state, who have all declared themselves for Madison, are unopposed."
