from the People\'s Almanac:

\"Every warm morning at 5 A.M., President Adams would slip down to the Potomac River for a quick dip in the buff. Once a lady reporter, Anne Royall, surprised him during his swim, sat down on his clothes and refused to go away until he had given her an interview he had been trying to avoid.\"
