[2]Election to fill the seat of Nahum Parker, resigned.
[3]"Our worthy friend Hill, is wrong for thinking that the one vote given for himself was meant a slur upon his character. No person, who is acquainted with him, or his paper, can for a moment doubt his eminent qualifications for a place in the SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES. But unfortunately, for himself as well as his fellow citizens, he will not be eligible to a seat in that body before he is thirty years of age, unless an alteration of the Constitution can be effected." Concord Gazette (Concord, NH). June 26, 1810. Isaac Hill, the publisher of The New-Hampshire Patriot (Concord, NH) was 21 years old at the time. Hill would go on to be elected U.S. Senator in 1831 and Governor of New Hampshire in 1836.
