[2]The election in the 29th District was contested by Parmenio Adams and he was eventually awarded the congressional seat. The vote for Isaac Wilson in the town of China was incorrectly reported. It should have been 45 instead of 67, thus making his vote 2071. In Attica the vote for Parmenio Adams was given as 98 when it should have been 93. The returns given above are the correct totals as determined by the Congressional Committee on Elections. Results as first reported in the Official Canvass of votes and later challenged are: Isaac Wilson 2093 votes, Parmenio Adams 2077 votes.
