Daniel Weisel was a leading Maryland Whig, lawyer, and judge. He began his law "practice in Hagerstown and Williamsport. He established, and in connection with a most worthy printer, Mr. Tice, published for some years, at Williamsport, a Whig paper called the Republican Banner, which he conducted with great ability, and to which he was particularly devoted" [Website of Find A Grave]. The recipient, General Jones [1776-1861], of the District of Columbia, was president of the local committee to elect Harrison.
