Statesman (London) 22 March 1820 :
General Election
State of the Poll - fourth day
Whitbread 1563
Byng 1810
Mellish 1176

Freeholders of the County of Middlesex.
Mr Whitbreads majority goes on steadily and uniformly. Every nerve has been strained by our opponent to swell his numbers on this days poll, but again we have signally triumphed. There is but one circumstance that can prejudice our cause - heedless confidence in the superior strength which we possess. It is this which may prevent its full development. Relax not in your efforts. Remember that Official Circulars on the other side must be met by vigous efforts on ours. Mr Mellish has condescended to borrow the plumes of Mr Whitbread. He calls himself the "Friend of the People!" Choose for yourselves. Gentlemen, which of these "Friends" shall represent you in Parliament - he who depends upon the undue influence of Ministerial Circulars, or he who relies upon your free and independent Suffrages. Be prompt - be firm - and you must be victorious. By order of the Commmittee.
Charles Shaw Lefevre, Jun, Chairman
Conmmittee room, Freemasons Tavern, March 21 1820.
