Excerpt from House and Garden, Vol. 21: An Illustrated Monthly Magazine Devoted to the Home, Its Planning, Building, Furnishing and Decorating, and to the Planting and Care of the Garden and Grounds; January, 1912, to June, 1912, Inclusive

If you had chosen to build that new house on the suburban boulevard, with fifty feet frontage and neighbors jammed up against your side windows, with a few two-year-old trees that may give some shade in fifteen years - if they don't die, with new plaster walls that crack and new woodwork that gapes at the joints, with doors that swell and have to be planed off to make them latch, with a prospect of being able to work that claybank into a properly barbered lawn inside of five years, perhaps - if you had so chosen can you by any stretch of the imagination pic ture your children bringing their children back to point out with pride the old homestead?

I do not know why I am arguing for the reclamation of these homes built by our forefathers as sturdily and beautifully as only they knew how to build them. Here I am advocating the general adoption of something that only a handful of people can possibly secure. For the old places are becoming very scarce. The aban doued farmhouse is no longer abandoned when it is within any reasonable distance of anywhere. To those, therefore, who have had the eye of the seer and have secured the desire of their hearts, my con gratulations; to those who may yet dis cover the few remaining treasures, I would say, make haste; and to those who are compelled to live in a new house, I extend my deepest sympathy.
