Adams Papers

To John Adams from Stephen Hall, 2 March 1793

Portland 2 March 1793.

My hon. friend,

Permit me once more to ask your friendship on so probable a prospect of success, as I think I now have.—Genl. Dearborn is chosen a Representative to Congress from the District of Maine. The Office of Marshall of consequence becomes vacant. I should like to fill the Office; and I think the President would willingly nominate me, if he should think of me. Your friendship therefore in the case will singularly oblige me.

I most cordially congratulate You, and felicitate my Country on your being rechosen Vice President of the United States.

I have the honor to be, with the greatest Respect, your obliged friend, and very humble Servt.

Stephen Hall
