Latrobe's Southern Boundary of President's House

This sketch by Benjamin Henry Latrobe was created to illustrate his plan to change the southern boundary of the president's house property from a semicircle to an oblong shape. Latrobe sent the sketch to President Thomas Jefferson in the spring of 1807, during Jefferson's second term in office.
