Excerpt from The Horticulturist, and Journal of Rural Art and Rural Taste, Vol. 4: Devoted to Horticulture, Landscape Gardening, Rural Architecture, Botany, Pomology, Entomology, Rural Economy, &C; July 1849-June 1850
We have seen farm-houses in the Old country that answered ... to this description, but they were not such as we can safely copy. Happy accidents; half castellated buildings, - the relics Of past time, upon which age had cast a softening tinge, and pruned off excrescences; but surely, an artist of genius might lay down the rules within which such buildings could exist.
The farmer loves to live in the sunlight. He cannot see the beauty Of overshadowing his house with trees. Therefore, the farm house, above all others, requires a form that need not shrink from exposure.
