Under This Roof
"May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof."
President's House, Washington City, Nov 2, 1800
I pray heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house and all that shall hereafter inhabit. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.
John Adams, in a letter to Abigail, on first moving into the unfinished White House
