In this letter dated March 6, 1841, Joseph Fuller mentions a Whig ball at Faneuil Hall in Boston on March 4 as well as one in Deerfield, Massachusetts on the same day. These balls were held to celebrate the inauguration of William Henry Harrison as the 9th President of the United States. Harrison, who led the Whig party, won the 1840 election by only about 6 percent of the popular vote, but a landslide victory in the electoral college; 234 votes to 60 for Martin Van Buren.
