unquestionably, one of the most princely
mansions in the kingdom; it contains a
noble collection of pictures and statues,

Annibal Caracci, the three Marys, is
eminently conspicuous. The park and
pleasure grounds correspond with the
grandeur of the house, and are orna-
mented with several elegant structures.
The family mausoleum is a circular
building, 90 feet in height, and 50 in
diameter; over the vault is a chapel,
surmounted by a dome: in the park is
an obelisk, erected in 1714, to comme-
morate the victories of the Duke of
Marlborough; and at a proper dis-
tance is an appropriate monument to
the memory of a still greater hero,
