Adams Papers

To John Adams from Benjamin Stoddert, 31 August 1799

Navy Department 31 August 1799


Ebenezer Bushnell of Lebanon in Connecticut, is recommended, is recommended by Mr. Swift of Windham—and by Mr Wolcott, as a very deserving man, and well qualified to be a purser in the Navy. A purser is wanted for a ship at Baltimore—and another for one building at New London.

I have the honor to enclose a letter to him, covering a Warrant, which will require your signature, if you approve of his appointment

I have the honor to be with the highest respect / and esteem, sir / Your most obed. hble servant,

Ben Stoddert
