The repository contains two quotes from President John Adams.
As he wrote in his diary during the first night the White House was open, November 1, 1800:
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.
