A message was received from the House concurring in the foregoing proposition.

Mrs Clark from the Joint Select Committee, to which were referred the returns of votes for Governor for the current political year, reported that thee whole number of votes allowed by the Committee to have been duly retained is forty five thousand two hundred and eight [written number is bold and underlined]; of this number Robert P Dunlap [name is bold and underlined] has twenty seven thousand seven hundred and thirty three [number is underlined]; William King [Bold] has sixteen thousand eight hundred and sixty [underlined], and all other persons have six hundred and fifteen; that the number necessary to constitution election is twenty two thousand six hundred and five [number is bold and underlined]. that Robert P Dunlap [name is bold and underlined] having twenty seven thousand and seven hundred and thirty three votes [number is underlined] and ten thousand two hundred and fifty eight [number is underlined] more than all other persons voted for is constitutionally[underlined] elected Governor[underlined] of the State[underlined] of Maine[underlined] for the current political year.

In many of the returns allowed by your Committee to have been duly made the name of the town was not set against the signature of the Selectmen, either on the inside or outside of said return, but as there was enough in the body of the returns to show from what towns they came, your Committee allowed and counted them.

The return from New Vineyard in the County of Somerset, although made into the Office of the Secretary of State on season was not sealed up, as the Constitution requires, and the voted were rejected by your Committee.

The returns from Troy in the County of Waldo, Brownfield in the County of Oxford, Deseter in the County of Penobscot, and Pembroke and Whiting in the County of Washington were not at tested.

Description: The journal of the Senate documents the proceedings in the chamber, including actions taken on bills, petitions and reports from committees read, and votes taken. The journals are not transcripts and therefore do not include floor speeches that are found in the modern Legislative Records.
