"Ebenezer Herrick, is again in nomination: and the circumstance, that no other candidate has yet been publicly announced, is thought ominous of his success...'There may be mischief concealed' - and it is important that the friend of Mr. Herrick should be on the alert." The Eastern Argus (Portland, ME). April 24, 1821.
The votes from Fayette were not included in the Original Election Returns.
