own dear Monticello, where has nature spread so rich a mantel under the
eye? mountains, forests, rocks, rivers. With what majesty do we there
ride above the storms! How sublime to look down into the workhouse of
nature, to see her clouds, hail, snow, rain, thunder, all fabricated at
our feet! And the glorious Sun, when rising as if out of a distant water,
just gilding the tops of the mountains, and giving life to all nature!"
-Thomas Jefferson to Maria
Cosway, 12 October, 1786
