PLATE XXXVII.

THE fouth elevation facing- the Southampton river, and commanding de_ Rightful views of the river, New Foreft, Southampton, and the TIle of Wight, A conservatory for flowers in the centre. The wings to be planted ouit. N.' B. I truft my friends will pardon the omiffion of a calculation, as it would be intruding on the indulgence allowed me, of making the Sketches public. PLATE XL. IS a defign made for a Lady ; intended for an elevated fpot on Highgate- Hill; the principal rooms commanding very extenfive views of MiddleIkx, Herts, &c. The fouth front and principal floor plan. PLATE XLI. THE chamber floor plan, and perfpetive view of the fouth and eaft ele- rations. This defign is eftimated at 3400/. N.EB. Some of the eftimates for Cottages may appear high; but as I have con- fidered all the timber work to be of fir fcantling, they are not foo; it fre-- quently happens that very flight fticks, and even boughs, are often ufed- to thatchon, and for inferior purpofes, and other cheaper materials ufed. Under fuch confiderations, they may be built much more reafonable, according to local circumftances. THE END.
