Second: Two others bearing the same name (Adams) were from the same state,
Third: The remaining of the seven (Jackson), being particularly tenacious of his opinions and ways came very properly from Tennessee.
Fourth: All of them, except one, were sixty-six years of age on retiring from office.
Fifth: All these last mentioned served two terms.
Sixth: The one who served one term only, had he served two terms would have been sixty-six on retiring,
Seventh: Three of the seven men died on July 4, and two of them on the same day and year.
Eighth: Only one of the seven had a son, and that son was one of the seven Presidents.
Ninth: Two of them were of the subcommittee of three that drafted the Declaration of Independence, and which happened just half a century from the day of declaration.
Tenth: In respect to the names of all, it may be said in conclusion, that the initials of two of the seven were the same - and the initials of still two others were the same. But one who stands alone in this particular, stands alone also in the admiration and love of his countrymen and of the civilised world - Washington.
