[1]"Mr. Buck appeared to be elected by a very great majority of the Eastern District: He had 2931 votes out of 3019." The Eagle: or, Dartmouth Centinel (Hanover, NH). November 7, 1796.
[2]"At the late election of a Representative for the Eastern District of this State to Congress, the whole number of votes was 3019. Of these 2931, were for Mr. BUCK. The scattering votes amounted to but 88, of which, not more than 3 were for the same person. We are happy to find that Mr. Buck's exertions and federalism have met with the universal approbation of his constituents." Rising Sun (Keene, NH). November 1, 1796.
