: "As I on August 25 [1684] was dining with [[William Penn]], a single root of barley was brought in which had grown in a garden here and had fifty grains upon it. The abovementioned William Penn has a fine vineyard of French vines planted; its growth is a pleasure to behold and brought into my reflections, as I looked upon it, the fifteenth chapter of John."

: "I have accepted of your kind offer of Lodging with Mr Lardner as it will save me some expence, and have been twice at Springetsbury, but both Places appear not to me as usual and instead of affording me any real satisfaction rather damps my Spirits, both ye Gardens & Vineyard are I think in tolerable good order but still there wants a superior Eye over it, your directions to Jacob & James [Alexander] will be complyed with, and there's a fine show of Grapes, the Orange trees flourish most delightfully, but am afraid the Quicksett [[hedge]] will not answer your expectation....
: "James desires you wou’d be pleased to send over two Stone rowlers [rollers] for the Garden those made in this place will not do neither answer the expence and imagines they will come cheaper from London they must be two feet 8 inches in length one 18 y<sup>e</sup> 15 in diameter, all the Flowers I brought with me flourish exceedingly but y<sup>e</sup> Hautboy Strawberries are al [''sic''] dead and ‘tis very difficult I believe to get them safe here, they were in the same box and had y<sup>e</sup> same Care taken of them and what is the reason they don’t do I cant account for."

: "Mr [[William Peters|Peters]] has bought Mr Taylor's scantling and 'tis carried to y<sup>e</sup> Hill and put under a Shedd, he has a notion you intend to build a house there for your self to live in before that at Springettsbury is built I believe he is mistaken and told him so, as you propose to build soon it wou'd be proper I believe that Bricks shoud be made against you come but Mr [[William Peters|Peters]] knows nothing about it and there's no orders given to make any nor won't be untill he hears from you, and the Ground all round Springettsbury has been tryed but not fitt to make bricks with this was done before Mr Steels death and nothing has been thought on it since. I wrote you sometime ago that there was a fine shew of Grapes at Springettsbury and the bunches hang very thick but there's either a blight or some Insect that destroys some one third others one half of the Clusters and yet the leaves and shoots looks as fresh and flourishing as may be, this being Sunday I propose to walk out by my self to Springettsbury and see if I can with all the reflection that I am Master of compose my mind a little if I shoud it will be something new to me."

: "[T]he Grapes at Springetsbury is intirely demolished and can't conceive the meaning of it, the Orange trees some of them are full of little flatt Insects, and James does not know what to do with them, ye trees on each side ye long [[walk]] wants to be shrowded very much, and hope you'l order it to be done in ye fall."

: "I have sent you 3 dozn of oranges & Leamons from Springetttsbury pack’d up in a Box directed for you. Mr Lardner & James [Alexander] were afraid they wou’d not keep, however I have run the risque, the Governour has had a dozn Already & am afraid the Trees have been Pilfer’d. They are in very good order, & every thing Else except the [[fence]]s round Springettsbury & am Sorry to find James not the Person I cou’d wish & think him blame worthy in Several respects."

: "Passing one day by the old manor of Springetsbury [sic], I greatly desired to stop and look at the remains of the garden.... The little [[greenhouse]] is now a ruin. In my youth an aloe was in flower, and crowds flocked out of town every fine day for many weeks to see the curiosity. Some of the fine [[labyrinth]]s and [[hedge]]s broke loose from the restraint of the sheers, and grown up behind the [[greenhouse]], form a dark [[grove]] of evergreens. Broom and some other European plants still grow wild.... (and I think it was the prettiest old-fashioned garden that I was ever in)."

: "The Gardens of Springetsbury [sic] were in full beauty in my youth, and were really very agreeable after the old fashion, with [[Parterre]]s, Gravelled [[Walk]]s, a [[Labyrinth]] of Horn-beam and a little [[wilderness]] &mdash; And the [[Grenhouse|Green house]], under the Superintendence of Old Virgil the Gardener, produced a flowering Aloe which almost half the town went to see, produced a comfortable Revenue to the old man &mdash; Soon after the house was burned down by accident; and now quantities of the yellow Blossoms of Broom in spring time mark the place...'where once the garden smiled'.”
