[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."

I am not sure where it was originally cited from, but I found it here The Journal of Latrobe: The Notes and Sketches... (1905), with some slight changes: "laid out in squares, and boxed with great precision. . . .For the first time since I left Germany, I saw here a parterre, stripped and trimmed with infinite care into the form of a richly flourished fleur-de-lis, the expiring groans I hope of our grandfathers' pedantry."
