The Village Record, December 15, affiliates Joseph Lawrence with the Administration party, Phineas Jenks with the Federalist party, and Rees Hill with the Anti-Administration party.
"On the first vote given for Mr. Hill, he rose and said, He was sorry that his name had been made use of, and he wished it to be understood that he was not a candidate at this time." The Pennsylvania Gazette (Philadelphia, PA) (Lancaster, PA). December 14, 1819.
"Jenkes [sic] voted for William Lehman, Mr. Hill for Wilson Smith and Mr. Lawrence did not vote at all. This probably shows the state of parties pretty correctly. All the federalists in the house voted for Mr. Jenkes [sic], the Old School and Binnsmen for Mr. Hill, and the administration men for Mr. Lawrence. Three members were absent-Baird of Chester County, Kyle of Mifflin and Crissman of Bedford-the first of these is a federalist, the other two democrats, and we believe administration men. So that the probable strength of the parties will be, on questions affecting the administration, 59 for and 38 against it." American Republican. December 14, 1819.
