Elections for House of Representatives in the State. Machinations involved
in the nomination of Chief Justice Morris. Difficulties of winning voters to Morris's

his direct Influence could have procured him 100 votes." These elections serve as a
preparation for the "grand elections" next spring. From what he has learned
electioneering upstate, Clinton, Burr and Chancellor Livingston will be unable to
prevent John Jay's election.
