Summary:
Elections for House of Representatives in the State. Machinations involved in the nomination of Chief Justice Morris. Difficulties of winning voters to Morris's interest: "Few men are more unpopular than the late Chief Justice and I doubt whether 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.
