Description

Text flap down and text flap up, Bird's-Eye View of Carter's Grove Entrance Road Split at Oval, James City County, Virginia. Text block reads: " You are familiar with this picture which shows four large box bushes at point indicated on the 20 scale plan. Between these bushes are the two steps mentioned in my letter. When you actually set out these four plants, I suggest a space of not more than 8 feet between the two central plants between which the two steps are to be set. The two outer box plants should nearly, if not quite, touch the two inner ones and should not be on the straight line but should swing out a little as shown on this picture and as shown on the above mentioned plan."
