Did You Know

 

Did you know, at the end of his life, and after Abigail had died, John Adams slept in his library room among his beloved books (which included novels by James Fenimore Cooper).

He wanted to be near what he loved after losing so much.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I didn't know that. That's sweet.

RO said...

Didn't know that, but I can relate, and have told everyone to spread my ashes over a bookstore when it's time to go. Sending lots and lots of hugs, and going back to bed to get rid of this yucky headache. RO

I wonder if he had a bed in the library or slept in a chair.

Love,
Janie

Sandra Cox said...

Good question. I'd be interested in knowing that too. Or maybe a sofa.

No lo sabía debía sentirse solo. Te mando un beso y buen fin de semana

No, I did not know that...but it doesn't appear odd to me to have done so.

Did not know that. I think I would be friends with him. I love being surrounded by books :)

He would have been a fascinating friend, wouldn't he?

I've been sleeping in a recliner in my family room. I have books in other rooms, but the family room has the most with built-in shelves and a huge bookcase.

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds like a purrfect sleeping spot to me;)
