461. ARCHITECTURE, Washington Capitol.—[further continued] .

I shall live in the hope
that the day will come when an opportunity
will be given you of finishing the middle building
in a style worthy of the two wings, and
worthy of the first temple dedicated to the sovereignty
of the people, embellishing with
Athenian taste the course of a nation looking
far beyond the range of Athenian destinies.—
To Mr. Latrobe. Washington ed. vi, 75.
(M. 1812)
See Capitol (U. S.) and Washington City.
