[2]"Cornish, Porterfield, and Lovel, in York County, gave the Hon. Mr. CUTTS 94 votes, and but 10 against him, they also gave 84 votes for the Republican Electors, yet no return was received at Boston from either of those towns. We hope no blame is to be attached to the Selectmen of those towns--but this negligence ought to be traced to its source, as the choice of Representative and Electors might have been destroyed, and the votes of a majority of the County rendered ineffectual." Eastern Argus (Portland, ME). November 30, 1804.
[3]"A Correspondent congratulates the Repubicans of York on the re-election of the Hon. Mr. CUTTS. This election not only secures to the County a respectable and worthy Representative; is not only a triumph of sound judgment over base intrigue; but it holds out to public view the difficulty, nay the impossibility of deluding the enlightened citizens of this ancient County." Eastern Argus (Portland, ME). November 30, 1804.
[4]The votes from Porterfield were not included in the Original Election Returns.
