Handwritten postscript: "Many thanks for your nice letter!" Since 1974, the Vice President has lived in a large, white-painted, Victorian house on the southeast corner of 34th Street and Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C. Located on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory, the official title of the home is "The Admiral's House". It is pictured on Mrs. Bush's stationery. In 1992, Mrs. Bush became the first President's wife to address the Republican National Convention. Married on January 6, 1945, George and Barbara Bush have been married longer than any other presidential couple. In 1999, they broke the record set by John and Abigail Adams, coincidentally, the only other presidential couple to be parents of a U.S. President. Barbara and George Bush, who were married on January 6, 1945, in the First Presbyterian Church in Rye, New York, Barbara Pierce married "the first man I ever kissed" have been together for over 60 years, a record for a U.S. presidential couple. Bush was Reagan's Vice President from 1981-1989 before serving as 41st U.S. President (1989-1993). Barbara Bush (1925-2018), with her sensible, down-to earth manner was an enormously popular First Lady. In addition to her many duties, she crusaded against illiteracy and supported programs to help the homeless and fight drug abuse. The first woman since Abigail Adams to be wife of one President and mother of another, she is the only First Lady to witness her son's presidential inauguration. Fine condition.
