From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/14/1882, p. 4, c. 4
I OFFER MY MAGNIFICENT
THE VAN LEW HOMESTEAD,
AN ENTIRE SQUARE,
UPON THE BROW OF CHURCH HILL, IN
THIS CITY -
ITS SUBSTANTIAL HOUSE,
CONVENIENCES AND HOME COMFORTS,
ITS VARIED AND PICTURESQUE VIEWS
OF LAND AND WATER, CITY AND
GRAND TREES AND ELEGANT SURROUND-
FOR SALE AT GREAT SACRIFICE.
It is a rare chance for any one of means desiring a milder climate, or suitable for an institution. Its river-front, its hawthorn tree, its ivy, its holly, its delicate mimosa, its many magnolias, its hedges and rustic seats, its limpid spring under a spreading beech, and its sweet and unexpected surprises, its varied chorus of sweet singers, including the mocking-bird, render it a gem of beauty – truly one of the beautiful homes of the world.
