Excerpt from The Craftsman, Vol. 10: April, 1906

A house designed by Budd, Emery Emery, of New York, is more intelligible from the more finished character of the drawing, and its design appeals to one's memories of old time as well as to one's ideas of what is good for the present. It shows a gambrel-roofed house with the pitch of the roof unusually steep; only one story in the walls, but with a gable accommodating and displaying two sto ries of windows. The story next above the ground story is lighted, then, by gable windows and also by one of those long, low, continued dormers which constitute almost an architectural story, so prominent are they. It is not a year since I asked a member of a New York firm which had built scores of country houses, with a due proportion among them of repetitions of that same feature, to characterize it for me and that intelligent man could give me no name for the architec tural member which I am trying to describe - no name as being in use by the workmen or by the draughtsmen.

The name of Wilson Eyre, of Philadelphia, is welcome to every one who cares for independent and intelligent designing. There are two houses of his shown in studies which proclaim afar off the inter est in landscape art of him who rendered the design. The first one is a house at Little Orchard Farm, but both seem to be at Camp Hill, and it is probable that both drawings deal with one and the same dwelling. These drawings we are fortunately able to reproduce. The main front, with a polygonal bay window of bold projection, is easily the more important point of View, for the other drawing is made rather to show the owner how his various out-buildings will be grouped about him.
