Letters from the past

Below is a note written by John Quitman describing produce and flowers in bloom. At Monmouth the azaleas are beginning to bloom and soon the grounds will be bursting with the colors of spring.

…On the table we had green peas, lettuce, radishes, artichokes, new potatoes, and spinach, grown in the open air, and roses, jessamines, jonquils, and pinks in profusion. What a delightful climate! The peach and plum are in full bloom, and the birds sing merrily in the honeysuckles around my bedchamber.

-John Anthony Quitman, 1822

What pleased you most during your recent visit: I stayed for Valentine's last year. As a younger couple, it is sometimes hard to find a kind and caring atmosphere. Monmouth was that and so much more. When we were lost someone stayed on the phone with us until we pulled up. Everyone was so wonderful, so I have already made my reservation for Valentine's 2009. In addition, I refered my friend to Monmouth for her wedding. Thank you so much for being as kind and courteous as you were to us.
