440. ARCHITECTURE, Economy in.—

I have scribbled some general notes on the plan of a house you enclosed. I have done
more. I have endeavored to throw the same
area, the same extent of walls, the same number
of rooms, and of the same sizes, into another
form so as to offer a choice to the
builder. Indeed, I varied my plan by showing
what it would be with alcove bed rooms, to
which I am so much attached.—
To James Madison. Ford ed., vi, 259.
(Pa., 1793)
