[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 assume it was originally cited from The Virginia Journals of Henry Latrobe (1977), but I want to make , 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, 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." (p. 165)
