[4]"One of the means which the Jacobins resorted to, in the eastern counties in order to carry their point at the late election of Senators, was to circulate a false report of the death of General KNOX, one of the federal candidates." Jenks' Portland Gazette (Portland, ME). April 11, 1803.
[5]"One cause why Gen. KNOX has so few votes in some towns, was the circulation by the Jacobins of reports of his decease." Columbian Centinel. Massachusetts Federalist (Boston, MA). April 20, 1803.
[6]"As the choice of Senators is soon to take place give me leave to name, as a candidate for the County of Lincoln, MARK LANGDON HILL, Esq. whose character and talents are known and therefore need no comment.--His situation in life and acquaintance with that part of the State, are expected to insure him a generous support. --A Farmer."
