Each side of the octagon exhibits two windows, an attic balustrade runs round the whole, ornamented with vases at each angle, and in the centre is a large octagonal lantern, with small vases at the angles. A handsome iron gate and railing enclose a small area, which give an additional ornament to the building.

About the year 1636 he formed an acquaintance with Mr. William Crabtree, of Broughton, near Manchester, whose genius led him to the same studies, but, owing to the distance at which they lived from each other, they could have little correspondence except by letters, which, however,...
