"We are informed from Tennessee, that not withstanding it was announced throughout the state, at the last Congressional election, that William C.C. Claiborne, Esq. was not opposed, yet such was the desire of the people of that state to show their approval of his conduct in Congress, that upwards of seven thousand true republicans and friends to their country, came forward and gave him their votes, so that he was re-elected, we are informed, without a dissenting vote in the state." The Virginia Argus (Richmond, VA). November 5, 1799."
