John Adams, 1735-1826. Second President of the United States (1797-1801). Signer of the Declaration of Independence. On Nov. 1, 1800, in his second evening in the White House, he wrote his wife, "Before I end my letter, I pray Heaven to bestow the best of Blessings on this House and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise Men ever rule under this roof."
