[5]"No. Voters, 2594. Make a choice, 1298." Governor's Council Records.
[6]Massachusetts law required a majority to elect. Samuel Fowler would subsequently be elected by the Massachusetts General Court.
[7]"We hear from Boston, that by the votes which last week were returned to the Secretary's Office, for Senators for this county, 1170 making a choice, it appeared that four Senators were chosen viz. John Hasting, Esq. 1500 votes. William Shepard, Esq. 1344. Samuel Lyman, Esq. 1400. David Sexton, Esq. 1310. The highest on the list beside the above gentlemen, were, Samuel Fowler, Esq. 1141 votes. Samuel Henshaw, Esq. 759. Hugh MacClallen, Esq. 700. Justin Ely, Esq. 600. As the poll was not then closed, 'tis possible that state of the votes may be in some small degree altered, tho not so as to affect the above choice." Greenfield Gazette (Greenfield, MA). May 15, 1794.
