Excerpt from Suggestions on Presidential Elections: With Particular Reference to a Letter of William C. Somerville, Esq. I do t entirel concur in the objections of Mr. Somerville, r 0 the Federalist, to a choice of electors by the State Legislatures under certain regulations; but this is a question into which I shall t enter, for the main feature of the plan which has some months existed in my mind, and which I intended at a convenient day to make public, is to Map of at once the whole system of electors. Let there be go-betweens in the case. The people Wish to proceed directly to their object, and to kw Who they are voting for - t as a proxy, but as Pmb silent. In fact, they do t Wel understand this complicated machinery of electors. I do t believe that there is one Voter out of fifty in new-england, tuho kws or wishes to kw any thing about it. The only question at the late election was, what ticket must I put in for Adams, or what for Craw ford '3 There was inquiry about the opinions or pretensions of the electors.
