Description

Extra from the Burlington Free Press, dated Tuesday, September 2. This appears to be an extract from the newspaper edition published Friday, September 4, 1840, indicating that the date is incorrectly printed. The announcement details the vote counts in Chittenden County "so far as received" for the Representatives of each Chittenden County Town, Governor, Chittenden County Senators, and the Vermont representative to the US Congress. The text celebrates in particular the success of the Whig Party: "The Whigs of Chittenden have covered themselves with glory." The party's success was also reflected in the Presidential race of the same year, with the election of William Henry Harrison on the Whig ticket: "So much for the labors of Cornelius Peter Van Ness and his abuse of GENERAL HARRISON."
