"It appears by the return from Somerset county, that the democratic voters, mostly live in Bernards-town, the same township where Henry Southard, Esq. lives. Poor Henry is quite chop-fallen, and the whole junto, are in dreadful consternation--their groans are loud, and occasionally they are heard to mutter, what a cursed disappointment ! what, more than three to one against us ! Yes Henry, it is true, there are more than three to one in Somerset county, opposed to the disorganizing, antifederal, deistical system." Guardian; or, New-Brunswick Advertiser (New Brunswick, NJ). October 22, 1800.
