This article by Mahlon Stacy originally appeared in House and Garden, A monthly magazine devoted to Architecture, Gardens, Decoration, Civic and Outdoor Art in 1905. The Magazine was edited by Charles Francis Osborne. This transcription was made from pages 83 and 84 of Volume 7, covering the period January to June, 1905 and Published in 1906 at Philadelphia, Pa., U. S. A. by The John C. Winston Co. of 1006-1016 Arch Street. It should however be noted that today the connection to the Boston printer, Thomas Fleet and his mother-in-law Elizabeth Vergoose has been largely discounted.
