Bishop Chase's log home in Gambier
(a.k.a. "The Bishop's Palace"), ca. 1827

Our log-house, additional to that you saw, will receive its roof to-morrow, and in the beginning of the week, I trust, will be occupied as a dining-room. The stone Gothic building, for a professor's house, must soon be plastered. I go to Mount Vernon to-morrow for a thousand things, and shall put this in the post-office for you. We have now nearly sixty hands, all busily and faithfully at work; an account of each is taken every night.
