Comments

Its low rustic wall stretches along the road. Pretty open woods on a knoll on Lancaster Pike mark Mr. Simpson's property. A natural terrace is a pleasing variation in the surface of the ground. On the stone gate-posts the name of the place is inscribed. The house is on a prominent position. It is of stone, with a piazza.
