I see the anti Americans of Washington have adopted a vile trick to dispute your election on Monday. It is to have talymen at the polls to record every Democratic vote before it is voted; & they advertise to all the faithful to have their votes thus recorded to "prevent frauds." With this record they will dispute the result altho’ they know will very many who do their record will vote the A. ticket. Now you should call a K.N. [Know Nothing] meeting in private without delay & let every K.N. [Know Nothing] record his vote as anti K.N. [Know Nothing] or Democratic & then vote as he pleases & languish[?] not the Knows.
