[1]The Commercial Advertiser on May 2, 1801 was the first New York newspaper to report the Assembly elections. The four other Federalist newspapers reprinted those returns on May 4 and May 6, 1801 and except for two exceptions in the Daily Advertiser [James Little 353, Jacob Sherred 366] all the returns in the Federalist newspaper agree with each other. The American Citizen (New York, NY) and General Advertiser (New York, NY) published their Assembly returns on May 4, 1801, which were then republished in their country newspaper, the Republican Watch-Tower (New York, NY). So there were essentially only two sources [American Citizen (New York, NY) and General Advertiser (New York, NY) and Commercial Advertiser] for this election. The American Citizen (New York, NY) and General Advertiser (New York, NY) results differ from those reported in the Federalist prints with the arrangement of candidates and some vote differences, especially among the Federalist Ticket. The votes for the Republican Ticket as reported in the American Citizen (New York, NY) and General Advertiser (New York, NY) are likely correct. There were only three differences in the Republican votes, which are returns from the American Citizen (New York, NY) and General Advertiser (New York, NY). Returns for the Federalist ticket are not so clear cut, as there were numerous differences between the two sources. The cross filing of votes indicate that those for Jacob Sherred, Nathaniel Pendleton, Abraham Russell and John Townsend as reported in the American Citizen (New York, NY) and General Advertiser (New York, NY) are generally not accurate. It appears returns for the Federalist ticket as published in the Commercial Advertiser are correct, except for William W. Woolsey. His 219 vote is from American Citizen (New York, NY) and General Advertiser (New York, NY) and there appears to have been one transposition; Nathaniel Pendleton in Ward 2, his vote of 387 [Commercial Advertiser] should be 378.
