Excerpt from Bryant
I suppose if anything could completely displease Mr. Bryant with this beloved home, it would be the addition of any outward costliness, or even elegance, calculated to attract the attention of the passing stranger. Friend Richard Kirk - a Quaker of the Qua... kers, if he may be judged by his works - little thought, when he built this great, ample, square dwelling-place, in the lap of the hills, in 1787, that he was fashioning the house of a poet - one worthy to be spared when temple and tower went to the ground, because it is the sanctuary of a priest of Nature.
