John Adams' White House Prayer, Susan Daul
Print by renowned artist Susan S. Daul. Catalog no. P89, 10 1/2" x 7 1/2". Hand-painted frame; finish may vary from photo.
This prayer is called the White House Prayer and it comes from a letter John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, in November 1800: "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."
We purchased a copy of this print for our house when we built it in 2009. It is displayed in our foyer, with a special inscription from Susan.
