Since the chief object of this collection of Fragments is to bring before the eye those changes, or improvements, which words alone will not sufficiently explain, two sketches [figs. 184 and 185] are introduced, to shew the contrast betwixt the ancient cedar parlour, and the modern living-room: but as no drawing can describe those comforts enjoyed in the latter, or the silent gloom of the former, perhaps the annexed lines may be allowed to come in aid of the attempt to delineate both.
