Pering describes this image in his letter, in full: "...a residence of a Mr. Scott near Paris, Kentucky. It is a one-story brick house and introduces principally to acquaint you with the antipathy many Americans have to rooms upstairs; 'it is so fatiguing to go up and down,' they say, 'and what is the use when there is plenty of space for rooms below?' That house contains nearly as splendid a drawing-room as I have ever seen; it is tastefully and handsomely furnished."
