452. ARCHITECTURE, Virginia Capitol.—[further continued] .

The designs for the Capitol
are simple and sublime. More cannot be
said. They are not the brat of a whimsical
conception never before brought to light, but
copied from the most precious, the most perfect
model, of ancient architecture remaining on
earth; one which has received the approbation
of near 2000 years, and which is sufficiently
remarkable to have been visited by all travellers.—
To Dr. James Currie. Ford ed., iv, 133.
(P. 1786)
