Description of the subject depicted in the print: The Old Stone House (we do not know either just when it began to grow old, or to be affectionately called so) was a solid, substantial, and even comfortable dwelling, as it was meant to be, not only for that time, but for two centuries later. It consisted of a main building and an " L." All agree that in its original form the Old Stone House was a very picturesque object. We have, therefore, taken great pains to present it as nearly as possible as it was. The walls were laid two feet thick in mortar that, with time, became as hard as the stone itself. The woodwork was made strong and durable, though not too clumsy, with low ceilings for warmth as well as for economy's sake. After a long departure from this old way, we, the prodigal sons of this wiser generation, are going back to the example set by the Puritan fathers in this respect. But how the big fires must have roared up those chimneys of a cold winter's night! and how like from a furnace in full blast the sparks must have streamed up out of their sooty throats into the outer darkness!
