THREE EX-PRESIDENTS WHO
DIED ON FOURTH OF JULY
One of the strangest coincidences of
American bMory was tbe death of two
ex-presldcnts, John Adams and Thom
as Jefferson, ou the name day, July 4,
182a ' .-
Adams and Jefferson were political
enemies. When Jefferson waa Inaugu
rated his predecessor did not even wait
to receive bim. In 1823 Mr. Adams,
feeling his growing infirmities, hoped
that he might lire to see tbe fiftieth
anniversary of the nation. Tbe hope
was realized, and it seemed as though,
being thus gratifled, the great intellect
of the Revolution cared not to live
throughout the day. He expired before
noon, almost bis lust words being:
"And Tliomns Jefferson still sur
vives." - .
Jefferson did survive,, but only for a
few hours. He, too, had been desrous
of living for the semicentennial anni
versary of the nation. J Hut be was mo
ill aiid fragile that it was not expected
be would hold ho long. The morning of
the Fourth of July, 1S20. enme at last,
however, and with a satisfied look
upon his face the author of the Dec
laration soon passed away. '
Neither Adams nor Jefferson knew of
the death of the other on tbo same day,
for communication waa slow then.
I'lve years nTter the death of Adams
and Jefferson another ex-prewldent,
i:iue Monroe, passed away; on the
FourUi of July. lie was n resident of
New York, ami, like Jefferson, was al
most In object poverty n the time of
his death, lie had been living the life
of a recluse, humiliated both by flnart-i-Ui)
