[CT 5/29/15] No note follows this quote from Latrobe (in the History section): "laid out in squares, and boxed with great precision. For the first time since I left Germany, I saw here a parterre, clipped and trimmed with infinite care into the form of a richly flourished Fleur-de-Lis, the expiring groans I hope of our Grandfather[s’] pedantry."

If we cite from here, three changes would need to be made (highlighted in bold): "laid out in squares, and boxed with great precision. . . .For the first time since I left Germany, I saw here a parterre, chipped and trimmed with infinite care into the form of a richly flourished Fleur de Lis: The expiring groans I hope of our Grandfather[s'] pedantry."
