:“I forgot to beg you before you leave [[Montgomery Place ]] to sketch the [[view]] from the bold rustic '''seat''' with rustic balustrade in front*on the high west river [[walk]]. It seems to me one of the very finest things I have seen anywhere.
:<nowiki>*</nowiki> that '''seat''' about half way between the steps & the south terminus. . . .
:“A path on the left of the broad [[lawn]] leads one to the fanciful rustic-gabled '''seat''', among a growth of locusts at the bottom of the [[terrace/slope|slope]]. . . Half-way along this morning ramble, a rustic '''seat''', placed on a bold little plateau, at the base of a large tree, eighty feet above the water, and fenced about with a rustic barrier, invites you to linger and gaze at the fascinating river landscape here presented. . . .
