House called ‘Tranquility’

This house featured in Home Beautiful; the pictures of my daughter and I probably mark some kind of high water mark in my life; I still had my strength; I felt promise, optimism, I felt respected, but sadly it wasn’t to last.

My First Building: Regent Street

I was very proud of it; not simply my workmanship, which still had way to go, but the conception; it fitted and appeared as natural in it’s location as if it had been built that way in 1870. I planted a multitude of trees too; this became part of my signature.
