April 20 1813
The middle district will uneqivocally elect its senators & give Tompkins
near a from 500 to 1000 majority. The <South^ern^> is some what doubtfill but will I am persuaded give us a small majority. We entertain full confidence of the success of the greatest part of our Ticket in Nyork. Dutchess will do well, Columbia as usual very little dissention, a good spirit afoot. Will you be so good as to drop me a line directed to Nyork giving the earliest election news you get?

NB. The eastern district will give a pretty <heavy> majority, agt. us Tompkins will at least go even into the Western district.
