"One circumstance in the late election is worthy of note, as it goes to prove that those are not always most popular with the people whose names are put in nomination at primary meetings or caucuses. Mr. Jenkins, of the present board of Aldermen, was put in nomination by both parties, and his name was printed on all the tickets distributed on the day of election, and yet he received less than one half the number of votes given in for Alderman, and consequently is not re-elected." Independent Chronicle and Boston Patriot (Boston, MA). April 16, 1823.
