Essay in architecture (Quotation)

"my essay in Architecture has been so much subordinated to the law of convenience, & affected also by the circumstance of change in the original design, that it is liable to some unfavorable & just criticisms." - Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Henry Latrobe, Monticello, 10 October 1809[1]
