[18]"The Election of a Council of Censors (to review the laws of this state, passed since the year 1814, and propose amendments thereto to the next General Assembly, if amendment be tho't necessary) took place on Wednesday last.--From the result in this town, which is given below, it would seem the election was not very strenuously contested. Indeed it has excited so little interest, that we have not received returns from any of the neighboring towns." Vermont Republican and American Yeoman (Windsor, VT). April 3, 1820.
