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

I have been much mortified
with information I received * * * from
Virginia, that the first brick of the Capitol
would be laid within a few days. But surely,
the delay of this piece of a summer would
have been repaired by the savings in the plan
preparing here, were we to value its other
superiorities as nothing.—
To James Madison. Washington ed. i, 432.
(P. 1785)
