SINCE the closing this volume there are several great and magnificent buildings begun to be erected, within the circuit of these letters, which however, not being finished, cannot now be fully described, (viz.)

  1. Sir Gregory Page's house on Black-Heath, which they tell us, will be a more magnificent work than any private gentleman's seat in this part of Great-Britain.
  2. The Lord Onslow's seat, re-edifying near Guildford.
  3. Sir John Williams's seat all new, at Stoke, near Nayland-Bridge, in Suffolk.
  4. A new square, almost a new town, at the east-side of Greenwich, on the Heath, in the way to Charleton.
  5. And, lastly, the famous addition, or square begun at King's College Chapel in Cambridge, of which the foundation is but even now lay'd.
