Notes:

From an oil-painting by Grosvenor.

Of these cottages it can truly be said that they are growths of the soil, trimmed and clipped somewhat by man, but never enough that they can be described as “works of art.” There is a little design, perhaps, some putting together of mud material, some thatch, and that is the cottage; but the rest somehow escapes us, forone finds the trees, the hedgerows, the orchards, the sun, the rain, and the rocks have a real and intimate part in the result, as will be seen in the illustrations on pages 147 and 150, and opposite page 141.” (p. 146)
