*Peale, Charles Willson, July 29, 1810, describing the ground [[plot]] at [[Belfield]] (Miller et al. 1991: 3:53)<ref name="Miller"></ref>
:“This ground [[plot]] is made by recollection, but I think it near anough [''sic''] the truth to give you a more precise Idea of the place & the other Sketches which I intend to annex to my letters.” [Fig. 3]
:<p>“This [[View]] is taken at a point [from] the Tennants house a small distance, by which you see the Roof of the Mantion over the Garden [[fence]] which are of boards on a Stone [[Wall]]. The Barn and one of the Barracks on the West, the Coach-House near the Center, Spring-house on the East side and the [[bathhouse|Bath House]] below it. There is 4 large Popplers (Tulip Tree) which crosses the Road, and the Lumbardy Poppler a row of them on your right hand. Just above the [[bathhouse|bath-House]] is a small fish [[pond]] with about 200 Catfish which I brought from the falls of Schulkill. . .</p>
:<p>“In this [[view]] the stone steps at the End of the house is seen, which lead to the [[yard]] in front of the Garden, the Garden pails are on a stone [[wall]] on which grows Creepers now in full bloom they are a fine crimosen [''sic''] bell flowers in Clusters and an abundance of humming birds are daily sucking the honey. [[Green]] Gages, Damsons & quinces are along this [[wall]] & beneath rose bushes. you may discover a long Roof which has shelves for [[beehive|Bee hives]] conveniently situated to get their food from the flowers of the Garden.” [Fig. 4]</p>

:“I have made an [[obelisk|Oblisk]] to terminate a [[Walk]] in the Garden, read in Dictionary of Arts for description of them. I made it of rough boards & white washed it with lime & allum—The allum It is said will convert the lime in time to Stone. I have put the following motto on it—on one side ‘Never return an Injury, It is a noble Triumph to overcome Evil by Good.’ another, ‘Labour while you are able it will give health to the Body—peaceful content to the mind.’ another, ‘He that will live in peace & Rest, must hear, and see, and say the best & in french ‘y voy, & te tas, si tu veux vivre en paix.’ and on another ‘Neglect no Duty.’ The distick which I have adopted is claimed by several Nations, I have put the french because it is more concise & equally expressive.” [Fig. 5]

:<p>“I have also painted . . . a tolerable large Landscape almost finished, it is a [[View]] of the Garden and most of the Buildings, as seen from what we call my [[seat]] in the [[Walk]] to the mill,—difficult part in it, that is, a representation of the down hill or rather Valley between the point of sight and the Garden.</p>
