The accompanying sketches represent a design and plan for a suburban cottage of the rural gothic style.

By glancing at the plan it will be readily seen that it is intended for the home of a gentleman of taste and refinement; whose love for flowers is shown in the addition of a pretty conservatory communicating directly with the parlor; and whose taste for literary pursuits leads him to the setting apart of a room especially adapted to the reception of books - the Library.

The following are the details of the plan-accommodation:

No. 1. Open Porch, 6 feet by 8 1/2.

* I should like to have this grape compared with the Columbia and York Madeira, by some pone who has them.



No. 2. Hall, 13 feet by 18. Directly facing the entrance, glazed sliding doors open into the Library, No. 5, 13 feet by 15.

No. 3 is the Drawing-room, 14 feet by 19. Folding-doors lead from this room into the conservatory, No. 4, 14 feet by 17.

The flower shelves are arranged around the sides, while in the centre may be placed a fountain and basin, or a stand with an aquarium; either would have a very pretty effect seen through the Drawing-room arch.

No. 6 is the Staircase Hall, containing stairs to the chambers and cellar; this communicates with the Porch, No. 11.

No. 7 is a Dining-room, 14 feet by 16, connecting with a Waiting-room, No. 8, which is furnished with a Dumb Waiter, rising from the kitchen.

No. 9 is Pantry, 5 feet by 6.

No. 10. Back entry for the private use of the family.

No. 12. Back Porch.

Rural Gothic Cottage 140090

The second floor contains four good-sized chambers, each with a closet or a Dressing-room.

As the partitions are similar to those on the first floor, no separate plan is necessary.
