Albany Daily Advertiser

Cited in Cole's MVB..., seemingly as the voice, in 1815, of the Clintonians, who at the time wanted to seat Daniel D. Tompkins in the White House, rather than James Monroe.

Founded in 1815 by Theodore Dwight, (DAB on Dwight); purchased in 1816 by Wm. Leete Stone in 1816, merged with Albany Gazette at that time, and failed in 1818 (DAB on Stone)

Was for a couple of decades the mouthpiece of Van Buren and his political faction, generally known as the "Albany Regency".
