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

Our new Capitol, when
the corrections are made, of which it is susceptible,
will be an edifice of first rate dignity.
Whenever it shall be finished with the proper
ornaments belonging to it (which will not be
in this age), it will be worthy of being exhibited
alongside the most celebrated remains
of antiquity. Its extreme convenience has
acquired it universal approbation.—
To William Short. Ford ed., v, 136.
